John Rocca acquired considerable property in the Algerine Road area and in the town of Jamestown including this land which was donated for a park in 1980 by his daughter Edna Rocca Collard. He took an active interest in all matters in which the county's progress or welfare was involved. He served on the Board of Supervisors.
