This park was originally known as Hut Hill because of the rudimentary encampments continental soldiers built on this hillside during the Revolutionary War. In 1913, Parks named this piece of land Albany Crescent Park for the old Albany Post Road which once past by here and the site's distinct curvature. Parks shortened this site's name from Albany Crescent Park to Crescent Park in 1998.
