Denver Civic Center Park, Denver

Denver Civic Center Park, Denver

The Denver Civic Center Park is located directly in the center of the city. Whether visiting the Mile-High City for work or pleasure, it is easy to find this vast, green space in the midst of Colorado's art and history hub.

The park on its own is a beautiful spot to relax, meet with friends, enjoy an outdoor picnic or go for a walk. The 25,000 square foot park is filled with green grass, blooming flowers, and stately trees.

Within the park is the Voorhies Memorial, built in 1919 in honor of miner John Hart Pemberton Voorhies. There are also art installations, like the statues Bronco Buster and On the War Trail, crafted by Alexander Phimster Proctor.

The Greek Ampitheatre is a favorite feature of the Civic Center Park. Like the Voorhies Memorial, it was designed and built in 1919. The ampitheatre was created to reflect ancient Greek architecture and includes event seating and gorgeous murals.

The Civic Center Park is a quick walk between the Carnegie Libarary/McNichols Civic Center Building, the Colorado State Capitol and the Denver City Hall.
