Arsenal Park was the site of the historic Allegheny Arsenal. The 9-acre park spans a slopped residential block in Lawrenceville. Because of the slopped hillside, the park is leveled with terraces with different programmed activities and sports facilities occupying each terrace. There are tennis courts, basketball courts, 2 baseball fields, and a children’s play level.
The terracing made it the perfect hill-side, amphitheater like setting to see the fireworks show put on by the Lawrenceville Fireworks Committee.
