Great park....ever since the 99% protested smells a bit like piss! Been to several special events there, and it's always a good time. Just saw the Pro Challenge bike fest and couldn't complain. Year-Round events great for the family! Great events to bike too, and enjoy some good beers. However, if there's not a special event, stay away. You'll get... More

Walked from 16th st pavillion on a beautiful Thursday ( & Tuedays) for the food truck lunches. Neat way to experience Denver food and see the pretty grounds. Could see the Capital Building. Was crowded but not overly. Guess it helped for the homeless to blend in as others have written about. Did see some laying around by the fountain.

I go to Civic Center park for the events, last night I was there for the free yoga in the park and it was amazing. I have also gone for food events, a water event and fire works every year - I think they hold amazing and safe events there and it's a great place to be. The Civic Center... More

Lots of activities and permitted events. Judge them by what they offer. Otherwise a place to hang, or pass through on your way to government business. I accidentally clicked a higher rating and had to write this review to correct it.

I was born and raised in Denver, now live in S. Fla., and was in Denver this summer visiting with my kids. We went to the History Colorado then walked through Civic Center Park on the way to the Light Rail. This was a weekday afternoon, and I could not believe my eyes: transvestites, drug dealers, passed out homeless people.... More

Walked around the park. Beautiful flowers, lovely buildings and art installations. Saw a commercial being shot in front of the city & county building. Fun

Get your choice of food truck options on Tuesdays when they pull the wagons into a circle in the center of the park offering a variety of food options.

I am from a big city on the East Coast, so I am used to panhandlers, city life, etc. As we were walking through the area, all we saw were panhandlers and shady people hanging around. We didn't see any families or tourists on a nice Spring day. I would definitely not walk here after dark.

Civic Center Park, conceived during the City Beautiful Movement of the early 1900s, is hands down my favorite park in the entire city. It's beautiful. Take in the Colorado State Capitol building, the Denver City and County Building, a Greek amphitheatre, gorgeously landscaped flower beds, a memorial fountain, and many other pieces of public art. Take a stroll through the... More
