Historic Harlem Parks

Multiple properties within Harlem

Manhattan

Directions via Google Maps

Shaped by the steep and irregular topography of northern Manhattan, Jackie Robinson Park, Marcus Garvey Park, Morningside Park, and St. Nicholas Park are collectively known as “Historic Harlem Parks.” Venerable members of the NYC parks system that range in age from 75 to 150 years old, the four parks total over 85 acres and make up more than 40% of the open space in Harlem. The parks are much needed public spaces and each unique for its vibrant history, spectacular natural landscapes, recreation facilities, and historic landmarks.

The Historic Parks Administration in collaboration with the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance, Friends of Morningside Park, Friends of St. Nicholas Park, and the Jackie Robinson Parks Conservancy strives to ensure that these parks are maintained, programmed, preserved and continually improved as important assets to the Harlem community.

Historic Harlem Parks comprises more than one NYC Parks property. To find out more information about an individual property, please choose from the following list of NYC Parks properties in Historic Harlem Parks.
