White Plains Rd bet. S/B Cross Bronx Exwy and Westchester Av
Directions via Google Maps
This park, located at the intersection of White Plains Road, Westchester Avenue, and the Cross Bronx Expressway in the Bronx, is named for nearby Virginia Avenue.
Originally settled as farmland, in December, 1924 a street named Gray Avenue was laid out on the present site of Virginia Avenue. It is commonly thought that a surveyor of the area renamed the throughway Virginia Avenue to commemorate his birthplace in Stratford, in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Supporting this theory are the names of the adjacent streets, Stratford and Commonwealth Avenue.
