"Sloans Lake, the most water you can find in Denver"

Sloans Lake is a quaint next door neighbor to downtown Denver. Bounded between 13th, 29th, Sheridan, and Federal, it is filled with a diverse population drawn to the beauty of the lake and panoramic views of the Denvers skyline and the rocky mountains.

Houses range from historical Victorian home plans to cozy bungalows, contemporary duplexes, and modern condos giving Sloans Lake residents an eclectic neighborhood drive and homes for all tastes. Many new builds are occurring along the south side of Sloans Lake, opening more opportunity for prime residential and commercial real estate investments. Young professionals and young families tend to settle around Sloans Lake for its proximity to downtown Denver, the lovely lake and parks, and boutique shopping and dining experiences.

Sloans Lake is the second largest park in Denver, calculated at 177 acres, and has its own Marina for those who enjoy boating sports. The neighborhood surrounding the lake is undergoing a large population boom, and quickly filling with many new and exciting restaurants and breweries.

Edgewater sits to the west of Sloans Lake and offers a quaint selection of eateries, Joyride Brewery, Coda Coffee Shop, US Thai, pubs, and more. North of Sloans Lake is a local hotspot known as Highlands Square. Highlands Square is filled with trendy boutiques, coffee shops, cafes, artisan eateries, Mondo Vinos premier liquor and wine shop, Sweet Cows homemade ice cream, and much more. SloHi (where Sloans Lake meets the Highlands) presents even more opportunity for coffee consumers, handcrafted bagels, cycling enthusiasts, and a selection of English cask beer from Hogshead Brewery.
