Formerly known as the City Hall Green, the park was renamed the Joseph A. Griffo Center Square. This public space hosts a variety of events annually, from the Summer in the Square Concert Series to the YMCA's annual 3-on-3 Outdoor Basketball Tournament.
Griffo Square comprises the grassy area behind City Hall between West Liberty Street and East Dominick Street. It is designed to serve the population of Rome and surrounding communities.
The park is served by a small parking lot off West Dominick Street and addition parking lots off of Liberty Street, West Dominick Street as well as by both the North James Street parking garage and the North George Street parking garage.
The development of Liberty Plaza includes the following:
- A large grassy lawn;
- Walkways and planters;
- Benches, trash receptacles and accessible tables;
- An asphalt and brick pad suitable for placement of a concert stage and restrooms inside City Hall.
The park is a great place to hold your next special event. For information on reserving this park, contact the Recreation Dept. at (315) 339-7656.
