Jennings Park [OpenStreetMap]

A tiny piece of land that was acquired in 1955 during renovations to the BQE, Jennings Park is a fenced-off lot with no signs marking it as a Parks property. Named for Allyn Jennings, associate to Robert Moses, and is one of a series of parks in the area named after various other prominent figures from the Moses years.
