If you keep walking down 16th street you will come to the looming Millennial Bridge and after that Confluence Park. This parks overlooks the junction of South Platte River And Cherry Creek. It also gives a terrific view of the backend of downtown Denver.

This is an interesting park right in the middle of the downtown area. It sits on a river. Some rapids and some good scenery. Nice to see a bit of nature in the middle of the city. There does tend to a few homeless people...More
