The Glens

-A A +A
1923, Glen Creighton and Saco R. DeBoer. W. Colfax to W. 6th aves. between Estes and Garrison sts.

Saco DeBoer, Colorado's premier landscape architect, planned this 80-acre “Park for Happy Homes” with curvilinear streets. This “residence park,” with a community center and park, attracted middle-class residents whose preferences did not run to the fanciful English country mansions and cottages that promoter Glen Creighton fancied.
