The park is named for Jean-Baptiste Angrignon (1875-1948), a longtime city councillor in Côte Saint-Paul.

The park was inspired by the design of 19th-century English gardens. The park contains 20,000 trees, winding paths and a pond surrounded by cattails.

The park is located just south of Ville-Émard, east of Carrefour Angrignon, which is also named after Jean-Baptiste Angrignon, and west of Verdun.
