Civic Center Park ties together the threads of Capitol Hill, and features a neo-classical ampitheatre as well as flower gardens in the summer. The park hosts a farmer's market every Wed. from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. in the summer. Every Labor Day, the Taste of Colorado food festival also sets up shop.
From the park, you can see the State Capitol to the East, the Denver Art Museum to the South, and the County Courthouse to the West. The North side of the park faces the Denver Rocky Mountain News building and other office buildings downtown. The park is officially open from 5 a.m. - 11 p.m. daily.
Note: Please use caution in Civic Center Park at night. The park is fairly safe during the daytime, but drug dealers and homeless people camp out there at night.
