The highest terrace of the Trinity River at Dallas on the Oak Cliff side of the river is named for Marsalis Avenue because of its extensive development along that thoroughfare. The Marsalis Terrace occurs in two well developed areas in Oak Cliff. Lake Cliff Branch divides the two sections and has eroded the central part of the terrace. The larger area of the Marsalis Terrace lies on the southwest side of Lake Cliff Branch. The second area lies in the vicinity of the Methodist Hospital on the northeast side of the Lake Cliff Branch.
