Parks acquired Brook Park in 1979 under the auspices of the South Bronx Neighborhood Open Space Development Project. The project was initiated in 1978 by the South Bronx Open Space Task Force, Inc., an umbrella organization formed by a coalition of neighborhood groups committed to greening the environment and expanding community recreational facilities. The project was funded by a grant from the Heritage Conservation and Recreation Service, a part of the United States Department of the Interior. The Service was established by the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act, and it initiated the development and revitalization of 15 vacant lots throughout the South Bronx with an emphasis on community participation in design and maintenance.
