The Battery, also known as Battery Park, is a 25-acre (10 ha) public park located at the southern tip of Manhattan. The park contains attractions such as an old fort named Castle Clinton and multiple monuments.
The park was named for the artillery batteries that were built in the late 17th century to protect the settlement behind them. In 1940, the entirety of Battery Park was closed for twelve years due to the construction of the Brooklyn–Battery Tunnel and the Battery Park Underpass.
The park reopened in 1952 after a renovation, but then subsequently went into decline. The Battery Conservancy, founded in 1994 by Warrie Price, underwrote and funded the restoration and improvement of the once-dilapidated park.
In 2015, the Conservancy renamed the park to its historic name of "the Battery".
