The civic space park is a "bridge" between the ASU and surrounding community, and accommodates a variety of uses, events and daily functions of the university. The post office building, the A. E. England Building, a stage, and the green space comprises a student commons area. The splash pad water feature is a fun place to cool off, and there are abundant shady areas for picnics and outdoor relaxation. A signature shade structure is the centerpiece of the park's sustainable design. Solar panels on the shade structure provide energy for lighting and electrical needs. The Fair Trade Café and Gallery, located in the A.E. England Building, offers organic, fair trade coffee and hosts musical and cultural events.
