Acquired in 1916, the park is named after children’s author Hans Christian Andersen and includes a recreation center originally designed by John S. Van Bergen. The center has been significantly modified over the years.
The play equipment was previously renovated in 1985. In 2006, renovations to Andersen Park were made, including a new playground and the addition of a new splash pad.
