Floral park is one of the only three neighborhoods (the other being Bellerose and New Hyde Park) that are part of both, Queens County and Nassau County.

Formerly part of Queens, Floral Park became part of Nassau County in 1899, and it was incorporated as a village (Village of Floral Park) in 1908.

The area that is now Floral Park once marked the western edge of the great Hempstead Plains, and by some reports was initially known as Plainfield. Farms and tiny villages dominated the area through the 1870s when the development of the Long Island Rail Road and Jericho Turnpike cut through the area. Hinsdale had more than two dozen flower farms after the Civil War. The present-day village of Floral Park was once called East Hinsdale. In 1874 John Lewis Childs bought a great deal of land in the area. To promote his horticultural business, Childs named the local streets after flowers and renamed the area Floral Park. When the local Post Office took the name Floral Park, the Long Island Rail Road followed suit by changing the name of the East Hinsdale station to Floral Park in 1888.
