About Brooklawn Park
In an effort to remove himself from the bustle of the city’s center, the prominent New Bedford Quaker, Daniel Ricketson built a country estate in what is now Brooklawn Park. Literary greats, such as Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson, often visited Ricketson at his estate. Responding to the needs of a rapidly growing population due to the success of the textile industry, this land became a city park at the end of the 19th century. This 85-acre park is a multi-use complex that features baseball and softball fields, basketball and tennis courts, a skate park, playground, splash pad, nature, and cross country running trails.
