Inside Battery Park, you can find gorgeous gardens, walking trails, many monuments and more.

Battery Park is the starting point of NYC history. The location was recognized by Native Americans and Dutch Settlers. The Dutch West India Company began the settlement of New Amsterdam nearby in 1625. The colony grew and its commerce expanded, forming piers, wharves and slips along the coastline. Fort Amsterdam was constructed and, then, the first in a series of gun batteries formed around the shore.

The Battery has a fine promenade and an incredible vista of the harbor, two things that made it a popular place for New Yorkers to visit in the early 18th century. In 1982, Battery Park was declared a part of Harbor Park, a group of historic waterfront sites, by the state of New York.

Wander through the parks to visit the monuments designed to honor the soldiers, explorers, inventors and immigrants of the area. The American Linden tree was planted in 1995 to honor 19th century singer Jenny Lind. Her concert in Castle Garden in September of 1850 was the musical event of the century.
