Sloans Lake

An affluent town with access to spectacular lakefront attractions.

Welcome to Sloan Lake

Located four miles from Downtown Denver is the hospitable neighborhood of Sloan Lake. The affluent town is bustling with vibrant residential activity and hosts a wide range of natural attractions, including the spectacular Sloan Lake with its breathtaking views of Penny Island. Sloan Lake’s temperate climate with snowy winters and comfortable summers makes it easy for residents to enjoy all four seasons. 
Established in 1866, Sloan Lake served as private agricultural property before it became a public neighborhood with commercial and residential properties in the 1920s. Sloan Lake's history has significantly influenced the town's architecture, as there are several 1920s brick bungalows and Tudor-style ranches within its residential areas. However, the town also has contemporary townhomes, and commercial buildings were designed using modern features to attract and cater to a wide range of families, professionals, and retirees.
