Cadman Plaza Park is a beautiful and noteworthy park located on the border of the historical Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn neighborhoods.  With a newly renovated Central Lawn, the park serves as a playground for the entire Brooklyn Heights community.

The park honors Reverend Dr. Samuel Parkes Cadman (1864-1936), a Brooklyn Congregational minister and radio preacher famed for his oratory. As pastor of the Central Congregational Church in Brooklyn for 36 years, Cadman helped found the Federated Council of Churches in America, which he headed from 1924-1928.
