National and State Register

Downing Street Parkway

Denver County

The 0.4-mile parkway was planned by the Olmsted Brothers in 1913, and the plant material palette and design style is reminiscent of their work on Denver’s East 17th Avenue Parkway.

The layout screens a fashionable adjoining neighborhood from street traffic and enhances the transit way.  The property is associated with the Denver Park and Parkway System Thematic Resource.
