Fun Facts


Franklin Community Park is named because of its location on Franklin Avenue, which got its name from the original settlement of Franklintown in that area. It was the site of a defunct sawmill, which sat crumbling on the site, presenting a safety hazard to the neighborhood residents. Franklin Park Neighborhood Association raised money and worked every Sunday for weeks to remove the sawmill and build a clubhouse. The project was dedicated in June of 1953.
