The park was named after Clifton E. French, former superintendent of what used to be called the Hennepin County Park Reserve District.

During French’s tenure from 1960 to 1984, the suburban park system grew from 1,400 to 24,000 acres with a goal of keeping 80 percent of the land in its natural state, and the other 20 percent developed for recreation compatible with the natural environment.
