Fordham Landing Playground

Fordham Landing Playground [OpenStreetMap]

Originally named Berrian's Landing, after a pre-Revolutionary Bronx family that owned extensive farmland in several sections of the Bronx. The Landing once had its own rescue station called the Fordham Landing Division, a volunteer station of the Life Saving Service of New York. Fordham Landing Playground is one of six disconnected parks, ranging in area from about one-tenth of an acre to about four acres, that border the Major Deegan Expressway.
