On July 7, 1997, roughly nine acres of land in the neighborhood of Graniteville were assigned to the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. This area of land is within the site known as Graniteville Swamp, which is five times the size of the acreage assigned to the Parks Department. On June 1, 2000, another addition was made to what is now known as Graniteville Swamp Park. This little sliver of land, in addition to the original portion obtained by the Parks Department, account for close to nothing when they are compared to the size of the swamp.
