These attached rowhouses, which were largely built between 1895 and 1905, distinguish this street from its immediate surroundings. It takes its name from the large park located one block south, which was laid out by noted landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. The residential designs of architect Henry Newhouse and of developers Andrew and John Dubach continue to create a sense of a close-knit community for this picturesque one-block-long street.
