People need and bath, the fountains are not their private. What is going on with Denver. We now so many pan/handlers. What a shame for that as well as other thing. Denver you need to starting looking at what you're doing to this beautiful place on earth.

Cicic Center Park is a very nice to walk around for a few minuits, but only a short distance from many of Denvers best museums . The Denver Art Museum , Clifford Still and Kirkland Museum are a short walk from this Park. The Art Hotel and Denver Art Museum resturant are very good places for lunch and dinner.

Civic Center Park is a great place to hang out during the summer months/spring, just keep your eye peeled for sometimes, not so nice people. If you can tolerate the Burning Skunk smell you will be fine

This is a great place for a walk, especially for first time visitors. Also a great place to take pictures, or events.

There is so much to see it is worth adding to your day trip. I love to take the kids here during the day and play around. No to good for the late afternoon or extremely hot days but really awesome during the city festivals!

I visited in winter, but noticed unplanted flower beds so it's likely the park is more impressive in summer. Even in winter, it provides nice views of the surrounding buildings, including the Capitol. A very pleasant place to cut through on your way back and forth from downtown to the museums.

This use to be beautiful park, across from the state capital, with pretty gardens and benches. Today, it has become a gathering place for people with shopping carts, roving beggars of pot and tobacco, and people with something on their mind carrying signs. I never go here anymore, but rather view the disarray from a high rise office.

Visit Civic Center Park June-October Tuesday-Thursday where at least 50 food trucks gather offering your choice of food with options to eat in the park or umbrella tables are furnished. Get out of the office and get some fresh air!
