Caserta Playground

Caserta Playground [OpenStreetMap]

This playground honors the memory of Susan Caserta (1939-1994), a dedicated mother and community member. Originally named Odell Playground after John Odell, a late 18th century carpenter who rebuilt the Bronx Episcopal Church in Westchester in 1789, in time the playground came to be known as Susan's Park, or sometimes Mrs. Caserta's Park.
