Google cadwalader park and you will see what it once was. The park is now a mess. The area is wrought with crime. If you have been here don't depress yourself. If you never have been, don't bother. Hopefully it will return to its glory...More

A nice walking park but lacking scenery. What was once a grand park has seen better days, but you can always get a nice work out with a few laps around the park. There is also an art museum where you can reminisce over the...More
