By the end of the nineteenth century, golf courses were becoming popular in New York City. This led to the creation of many country clubs during the first third of the twentieth century. During the late 1920s, the Mayflower Country Club was established. With the designs of respected architect Alfred T. Hull, the privately-owned country club had a 147-acre golf course constructed in 1928 on Staten Island's south shore.

The Mayflower Country Club had many plans for recreational facilities, including tennis courts and an indoor swimming pool, but the stock market crash of 1929 prevented these plans from seeing fruition.  By the middle of 1930, however, Frank B.

Staten Island was very popular during the nineteenth century for two reasons: its arable land and its summer resorts. People would often swim and fish in the Island's various bodies of water. During the winter, residents would harvest ice from these ponds and lakes. One of the most popular bodies of water was Fresh Pond. This pond was often used for the above recreational activities, as well as for boating and ice skating. By 1850, the names "Fresh Pond" and "Silver Lake" were interchangeably used when referring to the lake. By 1860, locals finally began to refer to the park as solely "Silver Lake".
