Significance: North Broadway Park is significant in community design and architecture. In the area of community design North Broadway Park is probably the first, and certainly is one of the few curvilinear subdivisions in Santa Ana. Mature street landscaping, well set back houses and a neatly maintained environment continue to support the concept of a carefully planned residential park. Indeed, the promotional literature for North Broadway Park declared this to be "one of the finest residential parks ever conceived." In the area of architecture, there are many well designed and well executed examples of 1920's revival architecture in North Broadway Park. North Broadway Park represents the diffusion of the City Beautiful ideal into Orange County. North Broadway Park appears to be eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places under criterion 36 C.F.R. 60.6(c).
