Utopia Playground has deep roots in New York’s history. Named after an unfinished development project in 1905 by the Utopia Land Company, the playground shares its name with the adjacent Utopia Parkway. The parkland was once the home of the Black Stump School and a volunteer fire-brigade called the Black Stump Hook, Ladder and Bucket Company. NYC Parks acquired the entire site in 1941, and opened the playground the following spring.
