Greencroft Playground takes its name from its southwestern border, Greencroft Street. The word green-croft is a pastoral term, from the Dutch word croft for family farm, kitchen garden, or a very small pasture. When the neighborhood of Bay Terrace was laid out in the mid-20th century, the developers presumably wished to give the newly suburban streets appealing names, reminiscent of the area’s farming past.
