Once a vacant lot, this park was created through a partnership between the local Fulton Park Homeowners Association and the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) in 1990 and transferred to Parks seven years later. Landscaped with numerous varieties of trees and shrubs, it is a green oasis just north of the Atlantic Avenue railway and bordered on three sides by residential and school buildings.

As part of the Open Spaces Program, this site was among many selected by a panel of HPD planners and architects, community groups, churches and elected officials to identify vacant city-owned parcels suitable for open space. In 1990-1, the park was built with city funds at the cost of $850,000. For the next seven years, it was maintained by agreement by the Fulton Park Homeowners Association. In 1997, the property was transferred to Parks which now maintains it with the help of a community of volunteers.
