At just over 100 acres, Cadwalader Park is the City of Trenton’s most significant and historically important open space. Designed in 1891 by Frederick Law Olmsted, it is the only public park in the State of New Jersey laid out by the father of Landscape Architecture. Though the park has suffered through several decades of funding cutbacks, it still retains many of the landscape and spatial qualities present in the original plan. A Master Plan to direct the restoration of the park was developed by a team of Landscape Architects, Engineers, Architects and Urban Foresters with significant input from City of Trenton staff. The plan proposes a broad, prioritized range of short and long term capital improvements, as well as management and  programming recommendations.
