The Parkway District:
Take a tour of the beautiful parkway of yester year!

     The boundaries of the Margate Parkway District are Mansfield Avenue on the east, Wilson Avenue on the west and the rear property lines behind the fouse facing the Ventnor Avenue. The Parkway is actually a very wide section of Ventnor Avenue with landscaped medians that include trees, flower gardens, and fountains. The houses on either side of the Parkway are large and all are oriented toward it.
     All buildings within the Parkway are residences except for a church. The houses are large and examples of English Tutor, Spanish Colonial, Dutch Colonial and other styles typical of the period houses. The Parkway was a fairyland of lights during the annual outdoor Christmas lighting festival.
