It is one of the four original public squares incorporated into Downtown Austin through the 1839 city master plan drawn up by Edwin Waller.  This area was designated as a public square on original 1839 plat of City of Austin, but lay vacant for 70 years.

Wooldridge Park is unique as the only public square in Austin to have retained its original function since its establishment more than one hundred thirty years ago. When the first city plans were drawn in 1840, four such squares were included. The other three underwent various uses over time, hosting parking lots, a fire station, a church, a museum, and businesses. Wooldridge Park alone has remained an essential element of Austin's outdoor social, musical, and political life. Wooldridge Park consists of a city block, a natural basin whose sides are sloped inward to form an amphitheater. In its center is a bandstand.
