These two lots were assigned to the Parks Department by the Department of General Services Division of Real Property in 1980 for development as part of the South Bronx Open Space Project. The southern site, off East 175th Street, was originally cleared to make way for a new school, adjacent to the existing P.S. 59 on the east side of the property. When school officials decided not to build, the two lots were reassigned to Parks for use as a playground and sitting area in 1997.
