This park is a beautfiul focal point in historic downtown Jeffersonville. It is home to the annual Concerts in the Park series that emanates from the gazebo in the center of the park. A major architectural feature in the park is the Carnegie Library, a neoclassical structure with a magnificent bronze dome. Built in 1903 with funds from Andrew Carnegie, it was designed by Jeffersonville architect Arthur Loomis, who had been a partner in the Louisville firm of Clarke & Loomis. Immediately to the west is the former Post Office Building. Erected shortly after the Carnegie library, this structure is also an excellent example of the neoclassical style. It has been renovated for medical offices. Later additions to Warder Park include a statue of President Thomas Jefferson, for whom the city was named and the Timeline of History wall.
At the Corner of Court Avenue and Spring Street.
