The Sloan Lake neighborhood is a favorite by many Denverites for its large lake and path around it used for biking, running, and walking their furry friend. It also has sweeping views of both the mountains and city. There’s more—this neighborhood is expanding quickly with new apartments, townhomes, and many restaurants. This neighborhood has broken back into the top 10 Denver neighborhoods for the first time since 2016, according to this 5280 article.
