Fred's Facts

Parks build healthy communities by creating stable neighborhoods and strengthening community development. Research shows that residents of neighborhoods with greenery in common spaces enjoy stronger social ties.

This lovely thirteen-acre park, unique with its irregular shaped and rugged terrain, was designed in 1906.

More active recreation facilities are concentrated on the eastern side while the western half is devoted to more passive park use. A stone tunnel allows park visitors to move under the roadway without having to cross Baxter Avenue. This feature was a major characteristic when the Olmsted brothers were hired to prepare a design for the park in 1906. Completed in 1910, Tyler Park was named after Mayor Henry S. Tyler who died in office in 1896.
