Green Utica Fredrick T. Proctor Park

Explore the History of Frederick T. Proctor Park

Though F.T. Proctor Park is the smallest of Utica’s parks at 62 acres, this Olmsted-designed park is considered the crown jewel of Utica’s parks. Designed as a country park by the Olmsted Brothers Landscape Architects, this park is known for its open vistas and borrowed views as seen from the Grand Entrance, the Grand Lawn, Ravine, Lower Meadow, and Upper Field.

In the last 20 years, GreenUtica has invested in restoration and preservation projects in the park, including the stone staircases, the Lily Pond, the bathhouses, and the bridge.
