Darragh A. Park, III was born on July 24, 1939 in New York City. After graduating with a B.A. from Yale and M.A. from Columbia, Park taught French and held various administrative positions in education in Sierra Leone. After Park returned from Africa, he studied painting under Long Island painter Robert Dash, who bought Park his first folding easel. Park became an integral part of the New York art and literary scene during the early 1970s and 80s, where he met poet James Schuyler for whom he would later serve as his literary executor.
