The park is located on the grounds of Newton City Hall, a historic Olmstead
landscape. Fully accessible passive recreational areas, paths and sitting
areas are contained within the one acre park. Sonnets about the City of
Newton, composed for the park by U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky are
engraved in stone and distributed throughout the park. Specimen Beech
and Pin Oaks are visual foci and provide shaded areas for seating, games
tables and informal gathering.
