“Scary”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

I am from a big city on the East Coast, so I am used to panhandlers, city life, etc. As we were walking through the area, all we saw were panhandlers and shady people hanging around. We didn't see any families or tourists on a nice Spring day. I would definitely not walk here after dark.

“Neoclassical beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2013

Civic Center Park, conceived during the City Beautiful Movement of the early 1900s, is hands down my favorite park in the entire city. It's beautiful. Take in the Colorado State Capitol building, the Denver City and County Building, a Greek amphitheatre, gorgeously landscaped flower beds, a memorial fountain, and many other pieces of public art. Take a stroll through the (free) McNichols Civic Center Building and view its constantly changing art displays. If you're in town around the 4th of July, consider visiting the park for a free Colorado Symphony Orchestra concert and a fireworks show.

“too many druggies”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2013

this park is lovely in the summer with all the nice flowers and trees in full bloom, however, all the druggies and their dealers infest the park year-round making it a place that I don't visit much.
