Silver City Downtown

Plenty of beautiful places to settle into


Recently, Silver City MainStreet received a call from a Grant county resident who was in town to pick up her takeout and have lunch. She was looking for a place to enjoy her lunch and got the last open table at The Hub. Her call was asking about other locations she could eat outside downtown.

“We are lucky that we have several pleasant places to enjoy take out food downtown,” said Charmeine Waite, Silver City MainStreet executive director.

The Big Ditch Park has several benches between Market Street and the Main Street Plaza. The Plaza also has benches and just north of the Plaza is Lion’s Park. Lion’s Park has several picnic tables that were recently painted by the Community Youth Building Project. These tree lined areas along the San Vicente Creek are almost always cooler than along the street. It’s also relaxing to hear and see the water flowing below. Check them out and you may be surprised at how nice they are.

On Spring Street you will find the lovely Jaurequi Park. Along with beautiful green grass and a mural dedicated to Greg Jaurequi, there are covered picnic tables. The Silver City Museum has a nice courtyard with benches under tall trees. These are some of the places you can enjoy a take out meal, smoothie or coffee from one of our downtown restaurants or coffee houses. Silver City MainStreet encourages you to support our local downtown restaurants by ordering take out.

The mission of Silver City MainStreet is "To encourage a vibrant, historic downtown Silver City which is recognized as the heart of our diverse community." Visit the website, www.silvercitymainstreet.com to learn more.
