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!

Good views, lots of history. Watch out for the roving groups of homeless people who want money. Can be busy depending on what is happening in the park, from field trips, community events, homeless sleep spots, or protests at the Capitol.

If you are trying to get from downtown to the Denver Art Museum and environs you will likely see this park as a shortcut. Be careful. As noted in many other reviews - the park (and its outskirts) is filled with the homeless, and people who have obvious mental/drug/alcohol issues. I'd recommend another route most days.

Although the park looks inviting and is boarded by the capital building and various museums, it's probably best to circumvent it and stay on the sidwalks. Denver has a homeless/transient/creep problem and Civic Center Park is a magnet. Granted, there are certain times during daylight where you can walk through it , but even then I never feel completely safe.... More

This park is beautiful but as lots of others say, there are so many homeless people there. I never felt threatened or uncomfortable but it does make you feel sad walking around there. Aside from that though, the buildings are amazing and lots of statues and monuments to look at. Worth a little walk around for definite.

We walked across from the state capitol to walk through this park. There were a lot of homeless but the park itself was beautiful. Great views of both city hall and state capitol as well as the mountains.

Denver is a very walking friendly city. The park is nice and close to 16th Mall and the Art Museum. At nighttime the surrounding builds are lit up. It's very pretty. I was there alone and felt very safe. Worth the short walk from most downtown hotels!

This is one uncomfortable park to go through. While largely harmless and will leave you alone in this area, I saw nothing but homeless person after homeless person at this park and surrounding areas. Probably >100 of them. The park also seemed to be under maintenance when I went - I didn't even pull out a camera as there was... More

We only go here when there is a festival, like Cinco De Mayo, Veterans Parade, Festival of Lights, or Taste of Colorado. Otherwise it's full of homeless people.
