Carnegie Park is in the heart of the downtown, and has been the center of activities since it’s opening in 1910. Of historical significance is the Carnegie Building, once the town’s library, and now a museum and site where historians occasionally entertain residents and visitors with stories from the past. The Livermore Heritage Guild has shared the space with the Livermore Art Association since 1974. Visitor hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 11:30-4, with a docent onsite.
Just one acre in size, this location truly brings the community together on a regular basis. On Thursdays from 4-8, May through October, The Livermore Farmer’s Market is a bustling square block of fresh farm produce, with additional food vendors there to entice shoppers with a variety of meals and snacks while they shop. You’ll find local artisans there on occasion, along with some of the communities other businesses and organizations doing community outreach.
On the third Thursday of the month (known to locals as Thirsty Thursday) two area vintners will be on hand for tastings and pours. And to get a festive atmosphere going, live music really brings out the crowds. The park is perfect for a picnic – just bring a blanket and set out a spot to listen, sip and relax.
The parks has picnic tables and restrooms for public use. The building itself is available for rent and includes kitchen facilities and meeting rooms. Contact LARPD for details.
