Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a pretty and well-kept park between Denver City Hall and the Colorado Capitol. It was quiet with just a few people milling about during the week. There are various statues and photo ops of the downtown skyline, and it's close to the Mint, Central Library, and several museums.

I felt safe and delighted with the balanced beauty of this park. So many magnificent civic buildings! There was a peaceful demonstration in one corner of the park and I would enjoy myself more without it, but perhaps it is a locally traditional destination for political rallies.
Walking the 16th Street Mall I have passed numerous homeless but none were in the park.

The city buildings here are beautiful. Take the short walk out of the city center to explore this park. It isn't very big but the buildings are very nice.

We walked to downtown from the Denver art museum and found this park in the middle. Most of the ways were closed probably because of holiday. There was no homeless. Good place to take pics and play.

It seems like the park is not at it's peak these days. A lot of areas are fenced off. And it seems like this is because there have been problems with homeless people occupying large areas of the park. So it doesn't currently as well visited as it might be which is a shame because it looks like a really pleasant setting.

When I'm visited it was a day with snow still on the ground from recent snowfall. There was a protest going on at the Civic Centre!

Park has never looked so good. With events finally coming back it seems that the homeless have decided to go elsewhere. After seeing what it looked like on the news over the last year I was shocked how amazing the park is looking these days.

Located at the south end of the 16th Street Mall. This area could be beautiful but was very seedy with tons of homeless along with fencing blocking off parts of the park. Not a pleasant place to visit.

The photo gallery associated with this park does not accurately display the state of dereliction the park is currently in. I've been walking through this park in transit from capitol hill and LoBo and there were several sights that shocked me so much that I turned around on my first approach.
1. the entire area is fenced in with temporary fences as if in a state of siege
2. the area is flooded with groups of homeless lounging on the park masonry while acting strange or belligerent
3. The grounds are in a state of disrepair with trash and graffiti everywhere
4. law enforcement appears to have given up as not a single officer was patrolling the grounds despite the commotion

The civic buildings are majestic and I originally wanted to tour the grounds but I cant imagine anyone deriving any enjoyment from the site in it's current state.

This park is downright scary. I walked from 16th street to the art museum south of the park. I’d guess there were 100 homeless people at least. Drug deals in broad daylight. 10 in the morning! Zero police presence in the city as a whole. Walk with someone else or take a car. It is not safe. Denver has a major homeless problem. I was shocked as this wasn’t the case a few years ago.
