Teal Park is a public greenspace is Horseheads, New York. The land for the park was donated to the town in 1807. In 1910, political cartoonist Eugene Zimmerman, a resident of the town, designed the bandstand still standing today, known as the Zim bandstand.[2]

It is adjacent to Eugene's home, The Zimmerman House, and is contained within the Horseheads 1855 Extension Historic District.

The park was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[2]

Usage[edit]

During the Summer, Teal Park is home to the Horseheads Farmer's market which meets on every Saturday from 10:00 to 2:00.[3]

Also, a concert series is held here every Thursday starting on the last Thursday of June, and ending in August.[3]
