National and State Register

South Marion Street Parkway

Denver County

George Kessler and Saco R. DeBoer are credited with the design of the half-mile parkway executed between 1909 and 1913.  The half-mile South Marion and Downing Street Parkways serve as a connection between the Speer Boulevard/Cherry Creek corridor and Washington Park.

Both are heavily planted with flowering trees and form an important line in the Flower Trail developed in the Denver park and parkway system by Saco R. DeBoer.  The property is associated with the Denver Park and Parkway System Thematic Resource.
