James Morrison Park is a tiny park - more of a large garden - on a triangular island surrounded by Culver, Canterbury, and Harvard Streets in the Park Ave Area. It marks the entry to the ABC Streets Neighborhood, as noted on a sign installed in April 2012. Morrison Park is maintained by the ABC residents.
The park appears in the City of Rochester Parks Directory for the first time in 1917. Its namesake is believed to have passed away in 1911. Unfortunately, little is known about James Morrison.
Morrison Park was first redesigned in 1975. It underwent a second renovation in 2010 with the help of the landscape design firm Zaretsky and Associates. New dogwood and American elm trees were planted, along with hydrangea and forsythia bushes, while local artist Dick Lubey, assisted by Mary Nicosia, painted the control box to resemble a cobblestone column.
