Profile

The word "park" in Damrosch Park may be a bit misleading. Aside from a smattering of planter beds and azalea bushes, this place primarily consists of a traditional band shell adjoined by a concrete plaza with seating for 3,000. The outdoor performance space was built in 1969 by Lincoln Center and has since served as one of the prime locations for the Lincoln Center Festival in July, the Lincoln Center Out of Doors free performance series in August, and the Big Apple Circus from October to January. During the off-season, the most tranquil spot in the park may be found underneath a group of crimson king trees near the entrance. There, the granite-topped benches provide a serene—though not green—place to truly "park" it for a few.
