Kingsbridge Heights Bronx - Photo #28 - Washington's Walk

   
28

Washington's Walk goes along Reservoir Avenue from Strong Street to West 231st Street, , connecting the Strong Street Playground with Old Fort Four Park (see map). It's called Washington's Walk because General George Washington had a fort here during the Revolutionary War, and because there is now landscaped parkland with a path (broken by several cross streets) from end to end.

Was Washington's Walk created by the New Deal? Let's defer that question until we reach Old Fort Four Park.
