Washington Square Park has served various roles for its community throughout the years, adapting to meet its needs.
Well-known for its arch, honoring George Washington, the man for whom the park is named, and its fountain, the arch's elder by 43 years and a popular meeting spot, Washington Square Park also houses several other monuments and facilities.
Our Historic New York programs highlight the history and architecture of selected neighborhoods or parks. Join the Urban Park Rangers for a tour and discussion of Washington Square Park.
