In a year where the need for welcoming and safe public spaces became even more evident, Civic Center Park proved its enduring role as the Heart of Denver, while also serving as the epicenter of social expression in our community. We at the Civic Center Conservancy think back on both the moments of protest and mourning as well as the moments of joy and celebration. We think of all the voices expressed, the small businesses supported and the togetherness cultivated...
We could not have done our work without our partners, community funders, individual donors and supporters, who we thank from the bottom of our hearts.
While our work to re-energize Civic Center is never done, at year-end, we pause to reflect on all we accomplished together:
Funded and kicked off, in partnership with the City of Denver, a concept design process to guide a transformative, generational evolution of Civic Center.
As we look ahead to 2021, we are excited to convene conversations about the future of Civic Center and dream with all of you about how the Park will evolve for future generations. We are ready to continue on this positive path of activating, enhancing and restoring Civic Center Park, the Heart of Denver.
