Thanks For Your Support!

Our Fundraiser Was A Huge Success

We had a wonderful event at the Columbia University Faculty House overlooking the park. Thank you to all who came out and who sent in their support even if they couldn't attend. Here are some pictures.

Park History

The City received jurisdiction over the 30-acres property in 1870 and began constructing the park in 1883. The original plans for the park were drawn up by renowned park designers Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux.
