Providing ten blocks of resources, Jackie Robinson Park is a Harlem jewel.  One of four spaces designated Historic Harlem Parks, the park is noted for its strong connection with the community. 

Originally built as a neighborhood playground to encourage organized play for city children, and one of the ten original parks to receive a City pool, Jackie Robinson Park’s history is steeped with efforts to bring the neighborhood together in recreational fun.  Along with its pool opening in 1936, a recreation center was created the same year. Equipped with traditional cardiovascular equipment, weight room, and gymnasium, the recreation center also boasts a library, Computer Resource Center, and an arts & crafts room, among other features.

Outside, the park’s amenities abound.  Two baseball diamonds, basketball courts, volleyball courts, and two playgrounds, one with a water play area, provide residents with spots to compete and play.  Continuing in the park’s theme of “play,” a bandshell within its boundaries hosts bushels of concerts throughout the warm season, keeping Harlem’s tradition of fostering local music alive and well.
