ABOUT THE PARK
“Help! Rescue me!” pleads a little girl pretending to be trapped on the second story of a gaily colored tree house. This double-decker with fire pole is the favorite in this tiny park, but there are other things packed in here too: a boxed-in play area, drinking fountain, benches, and a maple-shaded promenade leading to a heptagonal wading pool. This park’s small trees also make it a good cooling off place for pedestrians overheated by walking among large buildings.
Firehouse was No. 23, built c.1910, last equipment run in 1964, due to the construction of a larger facility on a site better located to serve the expanded service area. The station housed horse-drawn and then motorized equipment.
