This playground and the surrounding housing complex recall the Luna Amusement Park that once occupied the site. Luna Park was one of Coney Island’s major attractions which, along with the beaches, shops, and theaters, made the area a world-famous amusement destination.

New railroad lines built after the Civil War (1861-65) provided the residents of the Cities of New York and Brooklyn a quick link to Coney Island. Hoping to create a prime resort area, developers enhanced Coney Island’s natural charms of sea and surf, by building restaurants, hotels, bathing pavilions, shops, race tracks, and theaters.
