Alamo Placita Park

The formal Italian gardens of the Alamo Placita Park section were designed to be viewed from the hillside of Hungarian Freedom Park (formerly Arlington Park) which, in turn, was to be viewed from Alamo Placita Park as a meadowed hillside backed by an evergreen forest.  Saco R. DeBoer designed both parks: Hungarian Freedom in 1925 and Alamo Placita in 1927.  The property is associated with the Denver Park and Parkway System Thematic Resource.
