(DENVER, Co. - SHOT 3/16/2005) Jimmy Berry, 53, rubs his eyes while hanging out in Civic Center Park one afternoon. Berry has been living on the streets after an unfortunate series of events in his life. He said its the first time he's been homeless in his life and wanders the streets with his dog "Betty Jo". He said it's only the second time he's been in Civic Center Park and added, "you'd be surprised by what you see when you're homeless". He said there was a time in his life when he was a self-described "alcoholic", but said he's given it alcohol for the most part recently. Denver is working on a plan to turn Civic Center Park into a destination point in downtown Denver by possibly connecting it to the 16th Street Mall and perhaps even burying part of Colfax Avenue to make the whole area more pedestrian friendly. The ambitious plan calls for reviving the area around the park that has largely become a haven for drug dealers and users and the homeless. The city hopes to make the park an entertainment center with food stands, concerts, film series and other attractions. (Photo by MARC PISCOTTY/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS)
