Jules Michaelis was the foremost local leader in the efforts to get the park built.

- Parks Commissioner August Heckscher, January 22, 1969

This park is named, in part, for Jules Michaelis (1893-1968), a long-time caterer and civic leader in the Rockaways. For 16 years he served as president of the Wavecrest Civic Association, and was also a member of the Rockaway Chamber of Commerce and the Borough President’s Committee on Aviation. He was also a leader in the efforts to develop Bayswater Park. The community felt a need for more recreation space and better facilities, and Michaelis was particularly interested in creating a quality baseball diamond so that students from Far Rockaway High School would have a place to play.
