Stewart Park Then and Now Guided Walking Tour

June 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

$7 – $12

From its earliest use by the Cayuga Nation, this beautiful lakeside site that is now Stewart Park has a fascinating history. Originally known as Renwick Park, its main pavilions date back to the late 1890s. Soon thereafter, the park became a private amusement park featuring dance and picnic pavilions, a bandstand, and a beautiful water tower. In the 1910s a booming movie studio produced scores of silent films there. Explore the buildings and sites that capture the history of the park—and hear plans for its ongoing revitalization—on a guided walking tour led by Friends of Stewart Park’s Executive Director Rick Manning and Board Chair Diana Riesman, who is also Executive Director of the Wharton Studio Museum.
