Burns Common (First Ward Park)
Corner of E. Knapp St., N. Franklin Pl. and N. Prospect Ave.
1847

A small parcel of land now developed as a home to sculpture, it has had many names -- First Ward Triangle, Burns Triangle, Franklin Square and Baby's Park.

It has been the home to a statue of poet Robert Burns since Mayor David Rose dedicated it in 1909, with 2000 citizens in attendance. Prominent local businessmen donated this statue of their favorite poet.
