Bounded by Bergen Street, Utica Avenue, Rochester Avenue, and St. Marks Avenue, Woods Playground takes its name from nearby Public School 335, Granville T. Woods Elementary School. The school, in turn, is named for Granville T. Woods (1856-1910), an African-American engineer and inventor, owner of thirty-five separate patents on devices ranging from a chicken egg incubator to an innovative railway telegraph system.
