Triangle Park (also known as Essex Park or Clairmont Park) is a small neighborhood park located at Clairmont Avenue and Essex Road in Forest Park-South Avondale.

The "Friends of Triangle Park" was founded by Julie Cochran and Barbara Blair. The group planned and executed improvements to what was then a bare grass wedge. Steve Coker drew up a master plan. David Lee served as general contractor and arborist with Ross Environmental and Civil Contracting performing the site grading. Neighborhood children contributed hand-painted tiles through Homemade Biscuits to decorate the concrete tables and benches.

The result includes a three-tiered playground and shaded picnic area, which were dedicated on August 25, 2001. The remainder of the fenced park remains an open grassy field used for informal recreation.
