Italian Lake Park is a public park located at 3rd and Division Streets in the Uptown neighborhood of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

History[edit]

The 9.5 acre park was restored to its mid-century grandeur in the 1980s.[1] The lake is surrounded by antique-style streetlights, textured walkways, and formal gardens maintained in the Italian Renaissance-style. Features of the park include a beautiful Japanese-style bridge representing harmony between nature and man and a classical-style fountain designed with three muses of art, music and dance, entitle "Dance of Eternal Spring." Outdoor concerts are held at the park during the Summer months.[1]
