MacArthur Park is a park in western Los Angeles, California, United States, named after General Douglas MacArthur.
MacArthur Park is most famous for the song named after it, originally a hit song written by Jimmy Webb and performed by Richard Harris in 1968. In 1978, a disco version by Donna Summer again hit the tops of the charts.
It was a most unusual single, running for more than seven minutes, with lyrics more symbolic than descriptive, and a climactic orchestral break, but apparently about a lost love and a rendezvous in the park. It has been covered more than 50 times, including versions by Waylon Jennings, Glenn Campbell, and Liza Minelli.
