With 46 miles of urban trails, the Central Park, 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.

Central Park's skate park, community pools, gardens and 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 or Hangar 2.

See the neighborhood map below to start exploring.
