Hartwood was originally built as an equestrian estate. The Tudor Mansion, stable complex and gate lodge were designed by Alfred Hopkins and built for John and Mary Flinn Lawrence in 1929. Today, Hartwood has an outdoor amphitheater on the western side of the property, and the horse trails are still used for riding, in addition to walking. There are no picnic groves or other recreational and sports facilities--this is a park that provides cultural services to people who might not otherwise experience them.
