Walker Park holds a distinguished place in the history of New York cricket and tennis. Initially known as Livingston Park, the name was changed in 1934 to honor Lieutenant Randolph Walker Jr., who died in World War I. Walker was a distinguished member of the local cricket club, and was a good friend of Eugenius H. Outerbridge (1860-1932), the first chairman of the Port Authority (served 1921-1924). The change was the result of a petition sent to Alderman Dennis V. Corcoran by the officers of the Randolph Walker Post of the American Legion.
