Battle of White Plains Park, Battle Whitney Park formerly, is the most visible remaining piece of public land on which the actual Battle of White Plains was fought during the American Revolution. This park was originally designed and built in 1976 as part of the National Bicentennial Projects. Interpretive historical signage is located throughout the park. As a preeminent historical site in White Plains, this park should highlight the importance of the hill's topography and geology to the Battle of White Plains.
