This vestpocket park—set in the bustling center of Tompkinsville—offers visitors space to rest, relax and take in some greenery amid one of the neighborhood’s busiest areas. The beneficiary of a $1.3 million renovation in 2007, the park now boasts clocks, a fountain and newly updated benches. The statue presiding over the park, The Hiker, honors soldiers who fought in the Spanish-American War. It was moved to the park back in 1925, after being repeatedly hit by automobiles at its original location, in front of Staten Island Borough Hall.
