    Great little park in the heart of Harlem. Fantastic history and lots of attractions from swimming, basketball, chess, and an outdoor theatre.

    Free live jazz and featured comedy acts fill the summer event calendar, while public play spaces, ping-pong tournaments, and a public amphitheater keep park-goers busy all year.

    The new amphitheater is world class and earns more summer bookings daily. Cast iron bell on the hill could sure use the same attention. Dog runs are separated for mini and maxi pups. Sat food market!

    Did you know? This cast-iron fire lookout tower is the only one of its type remaining in New York City. It was erected in 1855 as part of the city’s fire protection system.

    There are 2 main corners: one for the peoples with yours dogs and other for the very crazy people, but very friendly. Listen James Brown, dancing and playing a game with golf ball and a cup of coffee

    Trek to the top of the park and you’ll be rewarded with awesome views of midtown. There is also a great farmer’s market on the weekend and a crowded pool in the summer.

  • Doin' It In The Park: Pick-Up Basketball, NYC

    These courts once were home to the Holcombe Rucker, Rucker Pro, and E.B.C. tournaments. Pick-up games happen everyday, generally after 4pm. Legends: Cal Ramsey, Joe Hammond, Corky Ortiz.

  • New York Habitat

    Nice, small park that is perfect for jogging or walking your dog. It is no Central Park but with the green markets on Saturday it is a great place to spend an afternoon.

    Nice mini central park version in Harlem. With a dog run and the occassional farmer's market! :)

    Please note there is on going construction in the park. The amphitheater is being renovated so if you jog or bike ride please note your regular path maybe obstructed. The Acropolis is also fenced off

    Marcus Garvey Park has one of the oldest fire viewing stations in the city, let alone in New York City.

    Harlem World · March 28, 2010

    A great urban oasis in a historical part of Harlem. Beautiful Brownstones surround the park. In summer watch a game or climb to the top for awesome views of the city.
