This park honors Patricia Brackley (1940-1999), a dedicated gardener and local volunteer. Born in New Kensington, Pennsylvania, Brackley graduated from Indiana’s Purdue University in 1961 and moved to New York to work as a schoolteacher. In her spare time, Brackley served as president of the Shore Garden Club of Belle Harbor and Neponsit in the Rockaways and as vice-president of the Second District of the Garden Clubs of New York State. An expert florist in her own right, Brackley became an accredited flower show judge and wrote a gardening column for her local newspaper, The Wave.
