Vacant for two decades, the lots that make up the Garden were overhauled in 1993 with support from the North West Central Park Multiblock Association and Operation Green Thumb, the largest community gardening program in the country. In 1998, Garden members successfully lobbied to have the property made into an official New York City Park to protect it from commercial development.

The East Garden offers the comfort of a shady gazebo, two productive peach trees, and open space for meetings, social events and performances. The West Garden includes a large communal herb garden, a patio for barbecuing and a lovely rose arbor dedicated to the memory of Jesse Crawford, one of the chief organizers of the garden. Ample space in both gardens is devoted to communal garden beds, which are cooperatively tended by members, as well as beds assigned to individual members.

The West 104th St. Community Garden's current goal is to expand composting operation in the West 104th Street Community Garden to include participation by neighboring non-garden members.
