About Carl Schurz Park
Schurz Park is a 17.07-acre (6.91 ha) public park located in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York City. The park is bounded by East End Avenue to the north, 86th Street to the south, Gracie Mansion and Carl Schurz Memorial to the east. The park is named after German statesman Carl Schurz, who served in various government positions including U.S. Senator from Missouri.
The park contains a playground, a dog run, basketball courts, a handball court, a tennis court, and an amphitheater. The East River Greenway runs along the park’s waterfront.
In 1686, the land on which the park is now located was part of the estate of Jacobus Van Cortlandt, the first mayor of New York City. The land was subsequently passed down to his son Stephen and then to his grandson James II. In 1764, the site was acquired by Archibald Kennedy, 1st Earl of Cassilis, and it remained in his family until 1823 when it was purchased by John Jacob Astor.
In 1830, Astor sold a portion of the land to the City of New York for use as a public park. The park was subsequently expanded several times, most notably in 1876 when it was doubled in size due to the construction of East End Avenue.
The park is currently maintained by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
