Central Park

Christopher Columbus Statue in Central Park

Originally known as “Mulberry Bend Park” when it first opened in 1897, Columbus Park is one of the City’s oldest, located in one of the oldest residential neighborhoods in Manhattan—the famous “Five Points” historical district. The park—laid out by Calvert Vaux, co-designer of Central Park—has undergone a renovation in recent years and now features soccer fields, full basketball courts, playgrounds, water fountains and spray showers.
