Teal Park is a public greenspace in Horseheads, New York. The park was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983[2] and is contained within the Horseheads 1855 Extension Historic District.

History[edit]

Zim Bandstand

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] The park is adjacent to the Zimmerman House, which was Eugene's home.

Usage[edit]

During the summer, Teal Park is home to the Horseheads farmer's market which meets on every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A concert series is held in the park every Thursday starting on the last Thursday of June, and ending in August.[3]
