This playground honors two American patriots, Francis Marion (1732-1795) and Francis Hopkinson (1737-1791).
NYC Parks acquired this property, at the corner of Hopkinson Avenue and Marion Street, in 1935 and opened it in 1938. Park improvements were completed in 2006 that brought new garden areas, a basketball court, play equipment, and a sitting area to the park.

Will Smith, Hellen Mirren
Retreating from life after a tragedy, a man questions the universe by writing to Love, Time and Death. Receiving unexpected answers, he begins to see how these things interlock and how even loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty.
