Faber Park and Pool is located on what was once the north shore home of the Faber family. Their lead pencil manufacturing company was begun by Caspar Faber in Stein, Germany in 1761. A century later, his descendant Eberhard Faber (d.1879) came to New York and built the first lead pencil factory in the United States. A 1987 merger resulted in the formation of Faber-Castell, Inc.

ParkFaber Pool and Park

Work is being done at Faber Park to construct a plaza type skate park with reinforced colored concrete pavement and cast-in place skate-park components set into the sloping topography of the existing park landscape. The water run-off from the existing slopes and the additional pavement will be captured by new drains which lead to leaching basins. Existing trees will be pruned and fertilized and new native shade trees will be planted at the edge of the lower open lawn.
Anticipated Completion: Winter 2015
