Rockefeller Park

Named after John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil, Rockefeller Park runs on either side of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and is home to the Cleveland Cultural Gardens.

Today, the most visited part of Rockefeller Park is the stretch that runs between Gordon and Wade Parks. Roughly two miles long, it was the recipient of a good portion of Rockefeller's funds. Here, the Doan Brook flows in the open (it has been culverted underground for much of its path through University Circle) past the Cultural Gardens, while Charles Schweinfurth's four elegant stone bridges (completed in 1900) carry traffic over Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. In addition, this part of Rockefeller Park features tennis courts, picnic areas, and a bike trail. Here, one will also find the Rockefeller Park Lagoon, once a popular destination for ice skating, fishing, and boating. The city drained the lagoon for a time in the 1970s, but it has since been restored.
