The quiet, shady patch of land, just west of the Craven Lane post office on Main Street, memorable for its white gazebo, is Weeden Park.

Owned by The Lawrenceville School, it is maintained by Lawrenceville Main Street, with support from the School. It is named for an early advocate of downtown improvements, Chuck Weeden.

However, the park generally serves as a peaceful haven for local residents, students and shoppers who simply want to sit and relax.
