Randall Playground serves the residents of the Castle Hill Houses. This sprawling group of buildings is one of the housing projects built under the leadership of City Housing Commissioner Philip J. Cruise (1898-1976) and Robert Moses (1888-1981). The project was approved in March 1954. Many former residents of East Tremont relocated to Castle Hill after their homes were demolished to clear a path for the Cross-Bronx Expressway construction.
