Norton Park lies behind Government House, and is named for Emperor Norton I, Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico. Emperor Norton ruled from San Francisco in the latter half of the 19th Century, and is considered something of an icon to most Molossians. Thus we named this lovely park after him, in honor of his impact on our lives and on the course of Molossian history.

Norton Park has gone though many stages in its existence. For two years after its creation, it was home to a grassy sward that the Ministry of Agriculture killed off as quickly as possible by over-watering. Subsequent to that, the Park became home to the Molossia Railroad, which moved there from its former home in the Back Forty. In spite of this, Norton Park remained rather bleak and neglected until 2005 XXVIII, when a major overhaul was undertaken.

Today, Norton Park is a place transformed, a tranquil garden in which Molossians can relax and enjoy life.
