Colorado AIDS Memorial
Flanked by the South Platte River, The Grove sets on the west end of Commons Park
in the river’s natural wetland filled with native grasses, bushes, and cottonwood trees.
The Grove is surrounded by an urban landscape of high-rise offices, local shops, tree-lined promenades and residences. This natural area is the heart of Denver and the soul of Colorado.

ANNUAL DEDICATION EVENT
Sunday, May 21 at 1:00pm
“Remembering the past, honoring the present and working toward a better future.”
Join us for a community commemoration and celebration on Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 1:00pm at The Grove at Commons Park. This year we will honor the many heroes in our community who have worked to further HIV/AIDS education and health.
The Grove is a natural space for peaceful reflection honoring the thousands of Coloradans who lost their lives to AIDS-related illnesses, those who cared for them and all others living with or affected by HIV. This is a FREE event and open to the community.
