Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, named for the former United Nations Secretary-General, hosts a cafe, a greenmarket, temporary public art exhibits, and is also a popular gathering place for public demonstrations. Towards the south of the park is the Katharine Hepburn Garden, which is named for the Academy Award-winning actress and Turtle Bay resident, and contains quotations and items from her estate.
