Heckscher Ballfields

The Heckscher Ballfields were carved from the original Heckscher Playground and are the earliest examples of an area of the park being designated specifically for sports. Around the diamonds there are bleachers for the convenience of spectators as well as a nearby snack kiosk and restroom facilities. Just south of the fields you’ll find Umpire Rock, apparently named for its commanding view of the games being played below.
