This is a beautiful park & great to go to events at; i.e. Taste of Colorado. Unfortunately it's a little rough when there's no other events going on. There are quite a few homeless people there. Most of them are harmless, but it can be a bit unnerving seeing them use drugs or passed out on the sidewalks. That being... More

We visited Civic Center Park on several occasions during our week's stay in Denver. The Taste of Colorado was there for three days with lots of great bands, food and entertainment. Then we passed through on our way to the Capitol tour and it was our meeting place for our free Denver walking tour. It is a nice park with... More

While the park is well situated between the capitol and many Denver attractions it really is overrun by homeless people and other interesting sort of people near the RTD stops. The park is great for holding big festivals and events but I wouldn't come here for a walk/run early in the day as the park is mostly empty and I... More

I've always heard good thing but never made until this year. All throughout Civic Center Park vendors set up their food booths and craft displays. I spent a couple of hours getting a taster portion, an ice cream or a drink listening to the music and watching the people. The Taste of Colorado was clean, we'll organized and a boat... More

we love this park because the setting is so cute. you have a view of the capital building and the courthouse. it is really quite beautiful. if you are visiting either building, take a picnic and sit on the benches.

The park is located at one end of 16th Street Mall and across the street from the state capitol. So, if you happen to be in the area, it's a nice green spot for a short walk. Most of the green was taken up by reclining homeless. But, the columns and the civic building both were lovely to look at.

Took bus and then free 16th street mall bus up to park. It was super expensive with very little in art kiosks but tons of food trucks and different areas for music venues as well as a whole amusement park for kids. We will skip it next time.

Civic Center Park is a true blessing to Denver citizens and visitors to our city. Seated in the heart of central Denver it is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon while visiting the city.

Capitol to the right, city court to the left. Museum behind you, Denver mint and Library within a block. Catch the Free bus down 16 street mall. Homeless as in most cities are are present, but not a problem with visitors. Very safe during daylight hours.

This park between the state capitol and the Denver city building is gorgeous, and weekdays it looks like there is a daily food truck line up for lunch. unfortunately because it a public space, it is also ground zero for the homeless population of denver. We saw countless homeless people and witnessed a few altercations between them. anyone travelling to... More
