This playground takes its name from two avenues that border the property: Ogden Avenue and Plimpton Avenue. The park is also bordered by West 170th Street, and Edward L. Grant Avenue. Ogden Avenue and Plimpton Avenue were named for William B. Ogden (1805-1877) and George A. Plimpton (1855-1936), respectively.
