With 46 miles of urban trails that connect to Denver's 85-mile network, the Stapleton, Lowry and Northfield neighborhoods are a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown. The neighborhood is home to many parks and open spaces, including Central Park, a haven for dogs, joggers, cyclists and Rollerbladers. Biking and hiking paths connect the area to the 17,000-acre Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, where city gives way to prairie. It's not unusual to spot golden eagles soaring in the skies above and bison wandering the wilderness. Stapleton's skate park, six community pools, three community gardens and 50 parks also beckon outdoor lovers. After enjoying the outdoors, relax and take advantage of the shopping and dining at The Shops at Northfield Stapleton, Stanley Marketplace and Hangar 2. See neighborhood map.
