“Gore” refers to a small triangular park. It is another piece of public park nomenclature that derives from apparel; such small parks are also called “vest pocket parks.” In the garment world, a gore is a triangular piece of material inserted into clothing (it can also apply to sails, or anything else made of fabric), to widen or change its shape. “Gore” has its origins in the Old English word “gara” meaning “corner.”
