The next time you’re craving a quick escape, head to Montrose Park. The tranquil 16-acre hidden gem is far removed from all the hustle and bustle of the city. As soon as you arrive, you’ll feel transported back to the 18th century. The park originally was the sprawling personal estate of rope-making magnate Richard Parrott before it was transformed into a public park in 1911. Many of the space’s original design elements, such as the tree-lined ropewalk made for manufacturing rope, still remain today.
