National and State Register

West 46th Avenue Parkway

Denver County

This 1.5-mile parkway is of a type used to connect parks (in this case Rocky Mountain Lake Park with Berkeley Lake Park). 

It is planted with honey locust, plains cottonwood, and silver maple street trees, and thus compares with University Boulevard in south Denver, which is planted with multiple species, rather than Montview Boulevard, in east Denver, which is planted with a single species--American elm).  The parkway was laid out in 1920.  The property is associated with the Denver Park and Parkway System Thematic Resource.
