One of New York City's finest places to play can be found along the waterfront of Manhattan's Lower East Side, in view of the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. With a track, a tennis complex, eight baseball and softball fields, and fields and courts dedicated to soccer, football, and basketball, as well as its dramatic views of New York's harbor, John V. Lindsay East River Park is a popular place for your next game. The park is also a vital link on Manhattan's Waterfront Greenway, and offers beautiful waterfront pathways for bicyclists and pedestrians to enjoy.
