Details

Opened in 1839 and redesigned in 1872 by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux to accommodate more visitors, the park has served as home base for countless community events and festivals, from the first Labor Day parade in 1882 and workers' in the 1930s, to the popular Greenmarket today. This former burial ground has seamlessly transitioned from a town square into a vibrant city park.
