Cadwalader Park, starts at Ellarslie Mansion
299 Parkside Ave

The Trenton Museum Society and Marquand Park Foundation will present “home and away” tours of two historic landscapes, Cadwalader Park in Trenton on October 15 and Marquand Park in Princeton on October 22.

Cadwalader Park was the last great urban park designed by the founder of American landscape design, Frederick Law Olmstead; he believed that the public realm should be a respite from the stress of urban life, and that public open space should be accessible to all. At its center is an Italianate villa, Ellarslie Mansion, designed by renowned architect John Notman in 1848, which today is home to the Trenton City Museum. On this walking tour with David Bosted, you will learn the history of the park, including Olmsted’s masterful arrangement of trees and shrubs.

Free; advanced registration is required, as space is limited. Starts at the Ellarslie Mansion front steps. Attendees can visit the museum galleries before or after the tour – donations welcome.

Parking is available on the Park roads adjacent to the Museum.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. 
In the event of severe weather, rain date will be Sunday, Oct. 16 at 1:30 PM.



This event is fully booked.
