Sand Creek Greenway Segment 4
Leaving the Wetland Park trailhead, you will meander along Sand Creek right next to I270, but you would never know it. You will see some interesting flood control infrastructure, pass by the historic Danish pig farm lots, pass the stormwater treatment facility, glimpse the edge of Riverside Cemetery, wave hello to Suncor, and end up at the confluence of the Platte River and the Sand Creek. Don’t let these landmarks fool you, there is plenty to see and experience on this segment, and it is one that should not be missed.
