Washington Square was established in 1847, and is one of the city's first parks. The flat lawn is dotted by benches and bordered by bakeries, pizza parlors and the striking cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul Church. Unlike some of the city's more touristy parks, WSP feels like a true snapshot of the surrounding neighborhood. Morning tai chi classes, the playground, dog park and walking track circling the park draw crowds of locals in the morning, while volleyball and soccer games pick up in the afternoon. Artists set up shop on Sundays and free movies are hosted in August and early September.
