This park is named to honor Jerry Tenney (1928-1977), a dedicated community leader who played a major role in the development of the surrounding Glen Oaks Village apartment complex. Born in the Bronx on March 28, 1928, Tenney attended DeWitt Clinton High School, New York University, and Long Island University, where he earned a Masters Degree. Tenney was a real estate financier and investor by vocation, but spent the bulk of his later life helping improve the garden apartment community of Glen Oaks Village in Queens.
