About The Park

History of the park and its name | The Oral History Project | About Luther Gulick

Luther Gulick Playground—also widely known as Sheriff Park or Elephant Park—has been a Lower East Side fixture for almost 70 years. Our diverse community has long come here to play and relax, but recent history has not been kind to Gulick Park. We are working to change all that. Find out more about the park here—or tell us about your history with the park.
