After years of research, public input and construction, it is time to celebrate your enhanced Civic Area gathering spaces – spaces you helped create!  Completion of the Civic Area Phase One – the park at the core - is a major milestone for our community! The transformation of this 13-acre enhancement area in Boulder’s downtown was made possible by the 2014 voter-passed   2A Community, Culture and Safety Tax   which invested $8.7 million in the park.
