This park is located between East 91st and East 92nd Streets on Ditmas Boulevard. It was originally called Ditmas Playground for the street to the southeast, which in turn takes its name from the distinguished Van Ditmarsen family that settled in the village of Flatbush in the late 17th century. Descendants of the Dutch family have included prominent businessmen and local political figures: Johannes Ditmarse, town supervisor in Flatbush, John Ditmas, a founder of the Flatbush Trust Company, and Charles A. Ditmas, founder of the Kings County Historical Society.
