This parkland has been in existence longer than the nearby street that also bears its name. There is no record of the origin of this name. Ida Court and the other parklands that border it were acquired as a part of a land purchase for the Richmond Parkway Outerbridge Crossing to the Cloves Lake Expressway. The City assigned the triangle, bordered by Ida Court (once Heenan Avenue), North Railroad Street, and the Drumgoole Road East along the parkway (now the Korean War Veterans Parkway) to Parks on February 23, 1965.
