Despite a much-prized location in the center of downtown, Manhattan Square Park is still unknown to many people.

The five-acre site, which was designed by modernist architect Lawrence Halprin and opened to the public in 1974, has recently been recognized by the Cultural Landscape Foundation. Halprin’s design has received the organization’s Marvels of Modernism Award. The award highlights modernist landscapes, parks, plazas, and playgrounds – some in need of public attention and major restoration.
