Civic Center Park, Denver
(3.3/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Park conservancies are an outgrowth of private citizens wanting to do more for public spaces than government can do on its own. Gaining steam across the U.S. over the past three decades, conservancies of varying sizes and models have been established out of concern for parks that government entities had neither the capacity nor the resources to maintain, program or enhance adequately. Conservancies are private, non-profit, park-benefit organizations that partner with government but raise money independently to invest in parks under action plans mutually agreed upon with their government partners. Key examples include the Central Park Conservancy, the Battery Park Conservancy and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy.

  • Although the park looks inviting and is boarded by the capital building and various museums, it's probably best to circumvent it and stay on the sidwalks. Denver has a homeless/transient/creep problem...  more »

  • Really beautiful central park near the state capital. Hosts a ton of events in the heart of the city. Like any park in a major city, there are of course some homeless people minding their own business and also enjoying a public space. Denver's Civic Center Park is a great addition to already stellar city. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy.
  • We went to a festival around the Civic Center and it was a ton of fun! After the festival we walked through the Civic Center and it was absolutely beautiful. Being a Peyton Manning fan, it was nice to take pictures of myself standing next to pictures that highlight his career. It was a very special experience that I would recommend to everyone! Beautiful architecture, very clean and very picturesque.
  • Beautiful area. Great place to hangout during the day. Great place to take pictures.
  • Love Denver's dynamic layout. Full of life and flowers. Lots of homeless but...that's another story.... Nonetheless, all directions you look, there's fantastic architecture and it just never gets old.
  • Love the park and festivals. I get really lost at festivals, and sometimes don't feel so safe there when I get approached by aggressive transients. But love how it's located near so many cool venues like 16th Street Mall, DMA, etc. and has free transit available to get around.
