  • This park has plenty of food and has an excellent view of the State Capitol Building. I just wish there was more shade.  more »
  • A really nice walking park near the Denver Art Museum. We found it by accident and did walk through it.  more »

  • I had an awesome time in Denver for the greater greener conference. The park looks nice for the most part. Not sure if all those works were done because of the conference. I also observed a lot of homeless around the park which is typical for big city. The civic center was very nice, I love the art that are on display upstairs. The garden outside was nicely done but there is potential for better design and maintenance. Overall Denver is a great place to visit I must say a clean city as well. I love you Denver the mile high city.
  • They do a great job maintaining the lawn and garden area and there's a clean public restroom available. It's a great place to sit on a park bench and read. Or stroll through and admire the garden. However, there are homeless scattered about but they tend to keep to themselves. I have never had any issue with them.
