Christopher Columbus, Discoverer of America, designed by sculptor William F. Joseph, was dedicated in the promenade of Denver Civic Park on June 24, 1970. The 15-foot bronze and stainless steel sculpture, a gift of Mr. And Mrs. Alfred Adamo, depicts a full-length figure, with four faces, arms and legs facing the four points of the compass, enclosed within a sphere of intersecting circles.

Denver Civic Center Park, located at the intersection of Colfax Avenue and Broadway and bound by Bannock Street, Lincoln Street, Colfax Avenue and 14th Avenue, officially opened in 1919. The park originated with mayor Robert W. Speer’s City Beautiful civic improvement campaign. Speer hired Charles Mulford Robinson to develop plans for the area, which were defeated in a 1907 election. Speer remained determined to proceed but was stalled when replaced as mayor in 1912. The new mayor brought in Frederick Law Olmsted Jr, whose ideas included an informal grove of trees on the eastern edge of the park, and a lighted concert area. When Speer was reelected in 1917, he brought in Chicago planner and architect Edward H. Bennett, who combined all the previous plans, and added the Greek amphitheater, the Colonnade and the seal pond.
