This park shares its name with the much larger Springfield Park to its south, a site named after the surrounding neighborhood of Springfield Gardens. An enticing settlement area because of its richness in natural resources, Springfield Gardens remained largely agricultural until the Long Island Rail Road extended to this community, stimulating rapid residential development. Today the park provides recreational facilities for both students in J.H.S. 231 and local residents.
