Spring Creek Park is located in Northern Jamaica Bay and contains the largest amount of undeveloped land and wetlands in the northern Jamaica Bay area. The name Jamaica comes from the area's first inhabitants, the Jameco, or Yamecah Native Americans, whose name is Algonquin for beaver. The Jameco lived on the northern shore of Jamaica Bay and along Beaver Stream and Beaver Pond (filled in in 1906). Jamaica Bay is a shallow tidal wetland of about 20 square miles in area, located between Brooklyn and Queens. It consists of grassy marshes sheltered from the Atlantic Ocean by the Rockaway Peninsula. The bay contains many islands, but only the largest, Broad Channel, is inhabited. The northern half of the island contains the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, which has two freshwater ponds and is host to a large number of shorebirds.
