Carr Park takes its name from Byron Leander Carr (1842-1899) and his wife, Mary Lord Pease Carr (1837-1933). Mr. Carr was a school teacher and attorney who settled in Longmont in 1871. He later served on the Colorado Constitutional Convention and as Attorney General for the new state of Colorado. Mrs. Carr taught with her husband in Longmont's first school. Later, she became a leader in political and civic affairs throughout the region, serving as the first woman on the Longmont School Board and as its president.
The park was built in 1978.
