You will find this unique and scenic Confluence Park at the 15th Street where Cherry Creek and the South Platte River meet and mingle. It is a great park where one can watch kayakers brave the rapids on custom-designed chutes or sunbathe on the sandy banks while enjoying the panoramic views of downtown Denver. In the summer, Confluence Park is home to a free concert series, held every Thursday evening around dusk. Besides being a great kayaking run, It also provides places for picnicking and games as well as plenty of areas for skating and walking. There are separate trails for walkers and bicyclists. The park is close to the REI Flagship Store, the Downtown Aquarium, the Denver Children’s Museum and Elitch Gardens Theme Park.
