O.C. Simonds, Landscape Architect

— 1903-1906 —

The Yahara River Parkway was the first parkway built in Madison. Designed by O.C. Simonds in the Prairie style, it features native plantings arranged in an irregular, naturalistic manner along the banks of the river. The parkway was designed with meandering paths, few of which remain. Nine historic bridges contribute to the character of the parkway; the oldest, constructed in 1904, is the Williamson Street Bridge. The parkway is also significant for its association with the Madison Park and Pleasure Drive Association whose work influenced the environmental character of Madison.
