For the Future

Join Us in Transforming Civic Center Park for the Next 100 Years

Located at the heart of the city and surrounded by many of our key civic and cultural institutions, Civic Center has served as Denver’s most significant gathering spot for cultural events, festivals, and First Amendment rallies for over 100 years. It is Denver’s first National Historic Landmark and honoring its history is critical as we envision its future. The project partners are working together to bring the 2005 park Master Plan to life by creating a vision for key features of Civic Center that will accommodate its traditional uses and also encourage daily active use.

Key Collaborative Initiatives

Improvements to Civic Center will catalyze new activity and animate this park the heart of Denver. The transformation of four key areas will fulfill past community-driven planning visions and elevate Denver’s first National Historic Landmark for the next 100 years by providing new energy, world-class performances, and events.

Civic Center's
Next 100 Years

Support for the park’s evolution already exists in our community and certain efforts to revitalize it are already underway. However, there is much more to do to successfully complete the community-drafted, 2005 Civic Center Master Plan and ensure the park remains relevant for the next century. The Next 100 program manifests our vision for this rejuvenation, which will require years of investment and collaboration by many committed people and organizations in order to make it a reality.

Since 2005, Existing Support and Investments:

$20+ Million
