It’s the “Gateway To That Part Of The West That Isn’t Kansas.” And if you can’t get to the mountains, which actually happens sometimes, you can get straight downtown and, hey, there’s whitewater.
Right where Cherry Creek and the South Platte meet, there’s this cool little plaza and some waves and a (tiny) hole.
Confluence Park is good for the following floatation devices: canoes, kayaks, rafts, SUP, inner-tubes, floaties, inflatable alligators, hydrobroncs, shredders, those foam egg-looking things you strap to your back, and the creature craft.
Some of those might be overkill.
Still and yet, hey, middle of the city, nice amenities and good people-watching.
You should check it out.
