This park takes its name from St. Gregory’s Parish, founded in 1907.  St. Gregory I (540-604), the church’s patron saint, was Pope of the Roman Catholic Church from the year 590 until his death, and is best remembered for introducing Gregorian chant. The school (est. 1912) offers instruction from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade and occupies two floors above the chapel in the church parish.  The fourth floor houses the rectory.  The baseball legend Babe Ruth (1895-1948) was married in the rectory on April 17, 1929.
