Tonsler Park is located at the corner of Cherry Avenue and Ridge Street in Charlottesville's Fifeville neighborhood. It was created in 1946 to honor Benjamin Tonsler, a prominent figure in the history of African American education[1]. The park was expanded to its present size of 7.4 acres in 1978[2].

The park features lighted tennis courts, a large playground and a recreation center. It is open from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm.
