This park is located next to NewHolly, a mixed-income, diverse community developed around the year 2000. It has picnic shelters, a plaza, an expanded children's play area, landscaping, and a community garden.

John C. Little, Sr. (died 1999) was a member of the Board of Park Commissioners for seven years. The park was named in honor of his service and career developing programs and services for the community - especially disadvantaged youth and low-income families. Mr. Little helped found the Central Area Youth Association and created a 4-H program for Seattle modeled on the program for rural kids.
