Leon Day Park at Franklintown RoadFrom picnic and playground facilities to sports fields and courts, Leon Day Park serves as a gathering place for people of all ages in the Rosemont-Franklintown Road neighborhood. Formerly called Calverton, the area contained mills and slaughterhouses before becoming residential in the 1920s and 1930s. The community became known as Rosemont in the 1960s when it opposed plans to demolish 790 homes to make way for the I-70 highway. The residents succeeded and their homes were later rehabilitated, although homes in the Franklin-Mulberry corridor (now Route 40) were demolished.
