Kountze Lake is Located in Belmar Historic Park which is located in Lakewood Colorado. The Park and Lake is very diverse in Wildlife! There are many birds in the area! There is an island in the middle of Kountze Lake for them to breed and roost! To the North and West of the Lake is a L-Shaped Swampy area which I collected water from also! Besides the birds, I saw many rabbits! Turtles sunned themselves on Logs in the water! There were many small minnow like fish in the water plus large carp! There were numerous snails of verious size and shape in the water! Cat-tails were in some areas around the lake but were more prevalent in the swampy area! A green film covered much of the water! Duckweed was abundant in the swampy area but nor the lake! Many xeriscape plants were planted around the shore of the lake which attracked many butterflies, bees and at nith moths were attracted to these plants! !


Here is a Map of the Park and Lake!

I collected water from the edge of the Lake! The PH on the lake was 7.5 and there were no measurable amounts of Ammonia or Nitrites! The salt level was between 0.00 and 0.02 percent!
