The park was named for its location in the Lynnhurst Planning District, which was most likely named for the abundance of linden trees in the area. The park's name was adopted in 1921, the same year the 8.21 acres of parkland were purchased. Lynnhurst is a residential neighborhood with most of its housing stock built before 1940.
