Civic Center Park in Denver sits between the State Capitol and City & County of Denver building right next to downtown Denver. The park itself serves as a location for large events including the Taste of Colorado, People’s Fair as well as the largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in the US. With it’s location and the many events which takes place during the course of the year it is a center piece of Denver and helps identify the city.
This image was taken at Civic Center Park in November 2008 and as I was walking near the Greek amphitheater I found downtown perfectly framed by the park. Knowing the numerous events taking place at the location and how it is tied into downtown this really describes how the park is part of Denver, serving as the gathering area in the city. If you look carefully at the top left corner of the white building in the middle you will see the signage for the Rocky Mountain News.
