Stapleton Westerly Creek Greenway
Running through the heart of the Stapleton neighborhood is a 66 acre man-made nature preserve called the Westerly Creek Greenway. It was designed to create wetlands within open space for wildlife habitat such as beaver, muskrat and eagles and has incorporated walking and biking trails throughout so that the Stapleton neighborhood can enjoy it as well. The trails, both hard and soft, run continuously throughout the park and connect Aurora’s Westerly Creek Trail system to the South, Stapleton’s Greenway Park & Central Park and Denver’s Sand Creek to the North.
