The Civic Center Park Conservancy celebrated 100 years of the Golden Triangle park with an outdoor gala for the first time in its history.
The conservancy held the event at Civic Center park on Sept. 14, and honored two Elaine Arsch Award recipients. It is the first time in the seven-year history of the event that the organization was able to host it outside at the park.
The Elaine Arsch Award is named for one of the founders of the conservancy. The award is given to those who significantly contribute to the Civic Center Conservancy’s mission to activate, enhance and restore the park, according to a news release on the event.
This year’s recipients were Dennis Humphries, an architect and vice chair of the board of directors for the conservancy, and the Boettcher Foundation.
“I often reflect 100 years back and wonder what it must have been like to have had such a highly disruptive vision to create such a significant public space in the middle of the city,” Humphries said, speaking of Mayor Robert Speer’s vision to create the park.
The conservancy works to promote and preserve Civic Center Park with programs such as Civic Center Eats. The park is Denver’s only national landmark.
