ABOUT THE PARK
A grassy lookout below steep slopes and brush, this park is suitable for a quick stop and a look at the lake while on your boulevard tour. It could also be a delectable stop around mid-August when the blackberries are ripe. Stairs lead up to 39th & John from the Boulevard.
Viretta Park was named by C.L. Denny, in honor of his wife VIRETTA Jackson Denny, a relative of Andrew Jackson, the 7th President (1829-1837). In 1909 all the parks in the local subdivision had been improved with lawn and shrubbery.
