This playground, like the adjacent school, takes its name from the surrounding neighborhood, Castle Hill. The area was named by Adriaen Block, a 17th century New Netherland Company explorer, who thought that a fortified Siwanoy Indian village in the area resembled a castle. Additionally, Castle Hill Avenue was originally a path used by the Siwanoy as early as 700 A.D.
