Confluence Park is a park encompassing the intersection of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River in Denver's Lower Downtown (LoDo), a bustling neighborhood of 19th-century brick warehouses and storefronts that has been redeveloped since the late 1980s into one of Denver's most vibrant and active regions.
The park includes cement trails often filled with walkers, runners, and bikers.
The park is adjacent to a number of new up-scale townhouses, apartments, and loft developments, another park bordering the South Platte downstream, train tracks, and Denver's skatepark.

 Utah - Canyonlands National Park - the Confluence of the Green and Colorado
The trail towards the confluence of the Green and Colorado rivers begins at Big Spring Canyon overlook, at the end of the main road in the Needles section.
The 5.5 mile (one-way) route leads up and down several small canyons, passes over slickrock for much of the way and is rather more strenuous than the average 'maintained' NPS trail.
The Overlook: The next short section of the confluence trail is also a spur road off the Cyclone Canyon vehicle track, and ends at a small parking area with pit toilets, about 0.8 miles from the rivers, so it is possible for those unwilling to hike to drive this far instead.

Several business owners who spoke at Tuesday's hearing said they hoped the neighborhood could be transformed from a present mix of businesses, offices, warehouses, low-income residences and light industry into an upscale enclave for retail space, offices, restaurants, entertainment and high-end residential use.
