You will be starting your walk at the Ice Palace Park in the 100 block of West 10th were ample parking is available.
Opening on January 3, 1896, the worlds largest palace of ice was built in Leadville. It contained a skating rink, grand ballroom, restaurant and exhibition halls. It lasted only a few short months, closing in May of 1896. This park commemorates the famed Ice Palace which was built just a few blocks away. The large lake you see in the distance to the northwest is Turquoise Lake--another beautiful place to take a walk.
