Meredith Woods lies next to the West Shore Expressway between Meredith and Ridgeway Avenues, with an addition on Glen Street between Parish and South Avenues. The park was originally called Neck Creek Marsh because its wetlands are drained by Neck Creek. It was renamed Meredith Park for William T. Meredith, a property owner in the Chelsea neighborhood. In 1998, Commissioner Stern changed the park name to Meredith Woods. Despite its current name, this parkland contains only a few trees on fill soil and is almost entirely salt marsh.
