Directions via Google Maps

Located south of Yankee Stadium and Heritage Field, along the No. 4 line, River Avenue Parks was created in association with the construction of the new Yankee Stadium.

Once a parking lot, the park area now consists of a pocket playground and skate plaza. The skate plaza was designed with input from the skateboarding community and features half-pipes, ramps, stairs, rails, ledges, benches, banks, gaps and transitioned elements in a plaza setting.
