Highland Park

Denver County

Like Montclair Park, Highland is a good example of a small multi-use park laid out in the English landscape tradition.  The plantings incorporate a sophisticated mix of plant material, including a few plains cottonwoods planted as street trees in the early 1900s. 

Construction and planting of the park took place between 1907 and 1910.  The park contains the Woodbury Branch Library.  The 1913 Italian Renaissance Revival building was designed by architect Jules J.B. Benedict. The property is associated with the Denver Park and Parkway SystemThematic Resource and The Architecture of Jules Jacques Benois Benedict in Colorado Multiple Property Submission.
