The Glen is a deep ravine cut through sandstone rock by Bear Brook. Glen Road to thesouth follows an old Indian path up the hill called "Spook Bergh" (Ghost Hill) by the early Dutch. Tradition says that a cave in the sandstone rock, now almost filled, was used as an Indian hiding place and later by outlaws. For many years, former owners James Leach and, later, Daniel H. Atkins, preserved the Glen in its natural state against threatened development. The Park was given to the Boroughs of Park Ridge and Woodcliff Lake in 1956 as a memorial to Daniel H. and Virginia L. Atkins.
