Reflection Lake gets its name from the incredible reflections on the lake. The gazebo has seats and wildlife information boards and is excellent viewing point to experience a diversity of waterfowl and the Columbia Mountains in the background. There is a large picnic area and you can often see paragliders and hang gliders from this location. With easy access off Highway 95 at the southeast end of Golden there is a maintained parking lot which also serves as a staging point for mountain bikers to access the Mountain Shadows trail network.

“Small lake with birds”

This is a small lake which has good facilities for watching birds. On the day of our visit it was far too windy to see whether it is also good for reflections.
“Not a lake, more like a marsh, or pond”

It is a marsh or a pond. It is very small, it does have a nice gazebo to sit at. It is about 30 seconds out of town. Lots of mosquitos. It's pretty relaxing but nothing special.
