This park honors Floyd Patterson (1935-2006), a boxing legend who was the world heavyweight champion for the periods 1956-59 and 1960-62. This property was acquired by the City in the early 1970s as part of an urban renewal program. In 1981, the land was assigned to NYC Parks by the Department of General Services, and was developed with Federal Community Development funds.
