Central Green introduces restorative nature to the vibrant and forward-thinking Fitzsimons Innovation Community at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. A significant new addition to the urban network of parks, parkways and boulevards, the space supports opportunities for community connection and collaboration at the world-class research campus.

Located adjacent to the Benson Hotel & Faculty Club, the Fremont Residences, and 21 Fitzsimons, Central Green is flexible outdoor amenity and event space that can be adapted to a variety of events such as food trucks, movies in the park, fitness classes, and more. The canopied performance stage is equipped with high-flexibility sound systems customizable for a variety of outdoor concerts and productions. Open to visitors at all times, the park space offers a variety of seating options, from quiet benches to café tables and fire pits. Infrastructure is in place to transform Central Green into an outdoor ice rink, providing opportunities for gathering and socialization year-round.

A place to connect with nature within an innovative urban environment
