This park honors Albert Montbellier (1899-1963). Born in Manhattan, Montbellier was a dedicated civic worker devoted to his Queens neighborhood for over 35 years. He was a leader in the fight against air pollution and aviation noise and served on the Borough President’s Committee on Aviation Problems. He organized the Springfield Gardens Taxpayers and Citizens Association and was its president for 25 years. He was also active in the Central Queens Allied Civic Association and was elected its president and was selected to serve on its Board of Directors.

Montbellier was dedicated to acquiring and developing this land as a park. Parks acquired this land in 1959, and it was named for Montbellier by a local law in 1964, shortly after his death.
