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.

Karen - This looks like a very nice day of fun and history. The park sounds fun and the music sounds fun. I remember when I was in a quartet and the Saturdays we used to sing in an area similar to this. What fun was had then. I sure miss it.

The Carnegie Building is a wonderful statement to the towns historical architecture Is it large cut stone?). Farmers market are the best. I would imagine that Livermore's is full of local vendors with amazing produce, flowers, nuts, breads, ets.  Lucky you to have access to all that!  Thanks for sharing more of your "turf".
