This is a great area of research!  Our poor Park has certainly been cut up.

For more recent history, I’d try folks at the Bronx Council on Environmental Quality (BCEQ)

The golf course question is interesting, too.  A fad among the upper classes who had their country estates in the area? A revenue source as part of park planning and department consolidation?
