Spent part of a Sunday afternoon visiting this space - mostly to take in part of the annual crane migration. There were many birds - including cranes and Canadian Geese that were feeding in the open field and other than birds squawking (which I love) it was quiet and I had some time to myself.

A former grand estate, the layout and location are perfect. Hidden off Coors, you can get away from the noise and sprawl and experience the area as it was years ago.
