The 180th Street–Bronx Park station was the former terminal station for the IRT White Plains Road Line of the New York City Subway. The line was originally supposed to extend farther north during the construction but was changed into a terminal due to protests stating that the trains running over the park would be bad for animals in the Bronx Zoo. The line's extension is the reason for the S-curve north of the West Farms Square–East Tremont Avenue station. After the line's extension to Wakefield–241st Street, the Bronx Park spur was considered redundant, but was not closed and abandoned until 1952. Trackways of the Bronx Park had been recently torn down due to the fact that it has not been in operation and useless according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.The station's former arrangement was two tracks and an island platform.
