The statue, erected in 1968, in a small enclave on the west side of the park faces the house in which Robert Emmet was born (now demolished). In 1803 he led an uprising for which he was executed. He was 25 years old.

The bronze statue is a replica of a statue in Washington which was commissioned by a group of Irish-Americans in 1916 and unveiled by President Wilson in 1917.
