Belleville Park itself in GTA III, as viewed from the northern end to the south.

Belleville Park is a district in Staunton Island, Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. It borders Bedford Point to the north, Aspatria to the south, Newport to the east, and an unnamed body of water to the west.



Contrary to its name, Belleville Park is actually a district that does not only contain a small, namesake enclave of forest, but also the surrounding urban space.

The park itself is a lush, hilly greenspace containing a maze of footpaths, complete with a pond (with an island and adjoining jetty), a boatyard and three basketball courts on the northern end, an obelisk and underground lavatories (with a detailed interior in GTA III) at the center, and a single footbridge and runs over a below-ground footpath to the south. The serene nature of the park is intended to clash with much of Staunton's heavily developed state, and is essentially the only major park in the city.

The outskirts of Belleville Park consists of multiple skyscrapers and landmarks across the road from the park. To the west, a row of seemingly residential buildings are lined along the park, as is part of an underground roadway that links Bedford Point to Aspatria. To the south are a set of skyscrapers, as well as a town hall seemingly inspired by the New York City Hall building. To the east are skyscrapers that are also partially located in Newport, including an unnamed shopping mall. Finally, the southern side of Belleville Park encompasses a large number of mixed use commercial and residential buildings. Belleville Park is also the terminating point for the Shoreside Lift Bridge, connected via a ribbon-shared overpass.

The park is loosely based off of Central Park in New York City, since this rendition of Liberty City is based off of New York City to a certain extent. However, Belleville Park is much smaller than its real-life counter-part. The obelisk in the park may be based on the Cleopatra's Needle in Central Park, but is only similar in the form, not in detail.

Places of interest

South Belleville Park is most notably the location of the player's Staunton Island safehouse in GTA III, while corrupt police officer Ray Machowski issues orders to the player from within the park's underground lavatories. In addition, a Landstalker parked in front of the park's lake is primary intended to activate a checkpoint side mission, known as "A Ride in the Park".

In GTA Liberty City Stories, set in 1998, Mayor Roger C. Hole is assassinated by Toni Cipriani on the grounds of the park while he is jogging during "A Walk in the Park". The GTA Liberty City Stories rendition of the park also spawns a Molotov Cocktail, a Police Bribe and a Health pickup; Avenging Angels members may also be seen roaming around the area.

Staunton's fire station is located on the northwestern corner of Belleville Park, close to Aspatria, spawning a Fire Truck.
