Once called Dekalb Playground, this playground was renamed for Classon Avenue, which forms its eastern boundary. The name “Classon” derives from the Dutch surname “Claeson” or "son of Claes,” which was later corrupted to Classon. Though unconfirmed, it may have derived from Pieter Claeson Wyckoff, a prominent early 17th-century Dutch settler.
