This oval honors Captain Thomas A. O’Brien (1884- 1918), who grew up nearby at 280 Burnside Avenue. He was killed on October 12, 1918, less than a month before Armistice and the end of the war. On December 1, 1924, the Board of Alderman named this park “to pay tribute to the memory of one who made the supreme sacrifice in the World War”.
