Yaple Park Historic District Highlights
Over the years, Yaple Park Historic District has been eyed by developers with grand plans, but it remains today a collection of modest homes with tree-lined streets. In the 1920s, advertisements for the then-agricultural area touted beautiful mountain views and a temperature that was 10 degrees cooler than within the city limits, city records indicate. The neighborhood drew middle-class families but also business leaders like P.M. Roca of the notable Lewis and Roca law firm. It even was home to celebrated rodeo clown C.W. “Pinkie” Gist, who later was inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame.
Today, the homes are still mostly modest, with two bedrooms and one bathroom. The area’s mature trees and irrigation set it off from some other historical areas. Yaple Park is near a light-rail station and also within walking distance of the Melrose on 7th Avenue shopping and dining district. Some homes face the scenic Grand Canal, a much-used walking and running spot for nearby neighbors.
The streets in Yaple Park are laid out in a grid pattern, with four east-west streets and two north-south streets creating six residential blocks, and the diagonal canal creating a small wedge-shaped block at the top of the district.
The streetscapes in Yaple Park are uniform, despite the many architectural styles found in the district. Setbacks, massing, and landscaping are fairly consistent district-wide and contribute to the coherent appearance. The neighborhood is adjacent to the Grand Canal and features an urban irrigation system with shallow ditches along the streets. As a result, mature landscaping is a key element in the neighborhood. The historic resources in the district display a remarkable diversity of styles; however, the great majority of houses are Transitional Ranches. Several revival styles and other historic styles are represented in Yaple Park, but in small number. Two-thirds of the Transitional Ranches have gabled roofs, and one-third of these houses have hipped roofs. The majority of the Transitional Ranch houses are brick, although stucco is also found.
