Part of the “City Beautiful” campaign at the beginning of the 20th century, the Pavilion was designed by John Humphreys and William Fisher, and completed in 1882. The original structure was replaced in 1929 and refurbished in 1992. Surrounded by the picturesque Sopris garden, Ferril Lake, and the historic City Park Band Shell, the Pavilion offers a variety of breathtaking views and photo opportunities. This elegant Spanish-style landmark features towers and arches and is nestled in front of the awe-inspiring Denver skyline. The City Park Pavilion is the signature Denver venue.
The City Park Pavilion is on the US National Register of Historic Places and Colorado State Register of Historic Properties.
