The new 16th Street Mall Garden Block (between Curtis and Champa streets) is a catalytic project for the revitalization and continued success of Denver’s premiere public space. As a partnership between the Downtown Denver Business Improvement District and Denver Botanic Gardens, the Garden Block creates a unique destination on the Mall and for all of downtown Denver.
The project creates a dynamic experience in a very urban space through the use of planters displaying a variety of themed landscapes, rotating annual and seasonal displays, as well as programming throughout the year.
This summer welcomes the return of the SCFD Showcase to the Garden Block. Every Wednesday June through August, various SCFD organizations will entertain, educate and inform during the lunch hour (11:30 – 12:30).
Garden Block resident Rialto Café is offering Denver Botanic Gardens members 10% discount on food and beverage when they show their membership card.
