Here is Civc Space Park in Downtown Phoenix:



On the right is the 1926 AE Motors Building. In the distance is the Historic Post Office (the low slung off white structure) and the 16 story Westward Ho, once the finest hotel in the Southwest. The two tone orange and red metal building in the distance to the right is the top of the excellent ASU Downtown Journalism building.


The historic Downtown YMCA is across the street. The park has these built in humps that work as planters as well as seating for concerts and events.


These large shade structures are throughout the park and provide a place for solar panels on top which power the park.


Historic buildings surround and sit within the park.


The AE England building with its sunken eating area and below grade coffee shop. The blue building in the distance is One Central Park East, which will be hotel and office space.




The highlight of the park is the net art sculpture "Her Secret is Patience" by Janet Echelman.


The park sits just North of the Downtown Skyline and next to Light Rail tracks.
