Always something going on in this park right across from the Colorado State Capitol, Denver Art Museum, Denver public Library, the City and County Building and not too far from the Mint and be sure to check out the McNichols building as there are always new exhibits

Civic Center Park is the heart of Denver, CO, and is situated between the state capitol building as well as our city and county offices. Most of the parades that happen in Denver, or festivals, etc, all happen at Civic Center Park, and there seems to always be something happening! If you're here during the weekday and there isn't a...

Go in the spring and summer months when the food truck vendors are doing lunch (Tuesdays and Thursdays). There are a wide variety of ethnic cuisines available. Something for everyone. If you are with a group of friends or colleagues and everyone wants something different, try Civic Center Eats. I go because on Thursdays there is a cart vendor called... More

I was in Denver on vacation and I wanted to attend 4th of July fireworks... the show was awesome... live music was provided by a military band... there is NOTHING quite as stirring as watching fireworks accompanied by live patriotic music... downtown location easy to reach by public transportation... a walkable place to stay and linger...

There is always something going on there, especially during the summer months. There are festivals almost every weekend, with plenty different ways to spend your money. Within the park you can see the State Capital building, the City and County Bldg., and is about a block away from the 16th Street Mall bus depot. Or you could head west and... More

Good stop to get a taste of Denver history and tap into the pulse of urban Denver. On Tuesdays, check out Civic Center Eats, a weekly food truck extravaganza where you can eat Venezuelan arepas and everything else. In August, come watch world-class cyclists from around the globe speed past the park in the peloton during the Pro Cycling Challenge,... More

Great place for festivals, and a mid-day break if you work Downtown Denver. A lot of places to commune with nature in the center of activity adjacent to the central business district, in the midst of all the government activities.

Historically located between several streets, this large body-strewn lawn of a park used to bestow a free contact high just from a brisk walk-across. Since Colorado voters accidentally joke-voted in mass, while ironically stoned, to legalize recreational marijuana in 2008, however, the haze has lifted because, and I quote a park regular, "it's just not that fun anymore.
