Slaughterhouse Gulch Park is a 10-acre park next to Downtown Littleton. There are both open, grassy areas and tree-shaded spots. It’s a great spot to take yourself, your kids, or your dog on a quiet walk.
Matt Wright's video shows one of the gullies inside the park.
The best place to park is the street parking at the intersection of West Berry Avenue and South Windermere Street, or in the parking lot at the end of South Crocker Street. These are the eastern and southern edges of the park, respectively. There is also a parking lot on South Court Place and another at the end of West Prentice Avenue.
If walking from South Court Place to South Windermere Street, the trail will be 0.57 miles.
Walking from West Prentice Avenue to the parking lot at South Crocker Street is 0.48 miles. The trail is called the Littleton Community Trail.
We won’t talk about how long each trail combination is because there are over a dozen combinations.
In total, there are 1.2 miles of walking trails in Slaughterhouse Gulch Park. There are many, many different paths, entrances, and places to park.
All of Slaughterhouse Gulch Park has tree shade except for the northwestern part; it’s just grass. You will find a little concrete circle with three benches here, which is perfect for a larger group of people.

You will walk over some very small bridges, with a small creek running through it. This creek converges with the creek draining from Geneva Lake at Geneva Park (we’ll talk about that below).
Furthermore, some of these trails go next to the train tracks on the western side.
This is kind of unrelated, but there’s a parking lot with dozens of school buses to the south of the park. I have never seen so many buses in the same place before.
One review says, "What an amazing trail! Lots of scenery and wild birds chirping. I went on a walk a couple days ago and the people on the path were so friendly. It's a great quiet place to bring your dog or even read a book!"
Geneva Park is right across the train tracks in Downtown Littleton, 0.2 miles away. There are dozens of trees, benches, and even a large pond. You’ll see lots of geese and a couple of water fountains in the middle of Geneva Lake.
It’s a quiet and convenient spot for people who are traveling through the Downtown area.
