With 30 acres of green hills, Brooklyn's oldest park is the unofficial nucleus of the neighborhood. It served as a military fort during the Revolutionary War and again during the War of 1812. At its center, the Prison Ship Martyrs Monument commemorates American war prisoners. Although it predates them, landscape architects Olmsted and Vaux (known for designing Central Park and Prospect Park) designed the current layout of Fort Greene Park.
