Prior to the urban renewal demolition of the sixties and construction of the ["Inner Loop"], the area occupied by Manhattan Square was a part of a residential neighborhood of houses and tenements that linked downtown to the ["Alexander Neighborhood" Alexander]/["East End" East] area. Their demolition created the open space that is now occupied by the park. Constructed in the 1970s, the park's major features originally included a towering steel viewing platform and a sunken fountain area, but these are now both closed. There also was a small cafe and a concert stage that was used for free outdoor concerts - the original "Party in the Park."<br> - <br> - '''Winter Months - Skating and Sledding'''<br> - <br> - The Manhattan Square Park Ice Rink is a popular feature open in winter months along with sledding on the park's small hills.
