This playground was not named until 1956, when it was titled by local law of the City Council in honor of Frederick B. Judge (1885-1955). Judge, a resident of South Ozone Park, served in France during World War I as Captain of the 20th Army Corps of Engineers for the United States Army. He participated in battles at St. Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne, where one of the largest artillery bombardments of the war occurred. After returning home, Judge became an active member of American Legion Post #28 and was frequently involved in local civic affairs.
