The five-hectare park, with a great viewing platform, a sunken fountain, and stages for outdoor concerts, sees a lot of family visitors throughout the year, making it a fantastic meeting place. Special events are held during times of Festival such as the Martin Luther King Commemoration Skate, the New Year's Eve celebration, the Valentine's sweetheart skate and St. Patrick's Day. The skating facility can also be rented for private events. In summer, the ice melts and becomes a reflecting pool with three fountains. It's a place where children like to play, and there are picnic tables around the rink. Skate rentals are easily available here.

Manhattan Square Park Reviews & Ratings

  • NOT for small kids, more of a skate park? Says water on some parts, but there was no water. ? A couple slides through a complicated metal spiral staircase and bridge or a steep climbing wall. That's about it. The pond part was cool, but not kid safe, looks like a wading pool, but you can't go in. Not very user friendly. I guess more for looking, or a walk. Nice fountains.

  • They have made this spot a nice focal point for downtown. Concerts winterfest and let's talk about the art work that was just done to give it a face lift. Looks amazing.

  • Had a good time there. Plenty of parking and a timely easy exit made it an enjoyable concert. Would recommend

  • Nice walk and small forced water dam ya get to view, and on the way out play some music with stationed xylophones their.

  • I went to a concert down in the falls area. The show was decent but I feel that it should've been on the street level like Party In The Park. Therefore plenty of people to justify the closing of Court by MLK Park.
