Highbridge Parks, Pool, and Play Center - Photo #13 - Highbridge Park in Manhattan

An entrance to Manhattan Highbridge Park in Washington Heights. We'll refer to it simply as Highbridge Park from now on because it's the only Highbridge Park that anybody has ever heard of, and it's famous for its enormous swimming pool. The land for Highbridge Park was assembled piecemeal between 1867 and the 1960s. It was designed in 1888 by Samuel Parsons Jr. and Calvert Vaux[1]. The Park extends along upper Manhattan's east side from 155th Street to Dyckman Street, about 2.3 miles. The Park is not a New Deal creation but many of its features are.
