We’re meeting 1:30pm at Prospect Park (3862 Youngfield Service Rd, Golden, CO 80401). We’ll be meeting at this park all of November. This park has construction going on, but we’re free to use the trail system + playground – we just have to walk a bit. Look up “Wheat Ridge Greenbelt Youngfield Entrance” in your map of choice to find us – for some reason the address varies based on which app you use. It’s a legit parking lot, not an RV sales place or a construction site, I swear. This week we’ll make our way to the cool rocks along the Clear Creek trail.
This park has both paved + natural paths, water – the creek + multiple lakes, trees to climb, fishing, bird-watching, bathrooms at the trailhead + playground, play structures, + many natural play areas. Come explore with us!
Let’s meet near the parking lot again, and head down the trail. If you’re pretty late, find us!
This week, please bring:
Outdoor, weather-appropriate clothing
Sunscreen, snacks + drinks for your people
It seems easiest if we use a single park for each month, rather than bouncing around. I am going to spread us out northeast and southwest, then centrally again. My goal is water nearby + a nature play area, whatever else we find is extra. To suggest an alternate park, if you wish, please email me!
