This Melrose park is named after local community activist Yolanda García, and is a tribute to her planning and perseverance. García organized local residents to form the Nos Quedamos/We Stay coalition dedicated to expanding the Melrose Commons area with more affordable housing and parkland. The park, which first opened in June 2019, includes a playground with accessible play for toddlers and preschoolers, as well as more challenging climbers for older children; as well as a large and lush green lawn for local families to use for relaxation and enjoyment.
