The name of the area around this park got its start as Mount Tabor Villa in the 1890s. After the Mt Tabor Street Railway Company started running an East Portland route from what is now Grand Ave to SE 55 Ave, development in the Tabor area exploded. Montavilla was one of the names given to neighborhoods by their developers. Also created were North Mt Tabor, Tabor Heights, Tabordale, and East Tabor Villa neighborhoods.
