Just behind Aspen Grove, you can enjoy the South Platte Park Carson Nature Center. It is a natural oasis within the city of Littleton featuring 880 acres of open space along the South Platte River and Mary Carter Greenway Trail.
Visitors can fish for small-mouth bass and trout in the five lakes; kayak through gentle water or rapids in the river; cycle or run the regional trail, or walk on miles of natural surface trails.
At the Carson Nature Center, re-create the areaâ€™s famous 1965 flood at the interactive Water Table or observe live animals in the Centerâ€™s museum. Outdoors, search for hundreds of species of wildlife close to home.
Spend a couple of hours or an entire day exploring Colorado nature, just a few steps from Aspen Grove.
