“Designed by Olmstead, who created Central Park, our elevated Thompson Park overlooks the city. Plenty of green space to sit, play, relax, etc. There's also the Thompson Park Zoo, a Paranormal Vortex (Area 51), the brand new Fort Drum monument, stone walled walks and a great playground. Splashpad coming soon!”
