"Battery Park City and the Authority are not just about the buildings – it’s about the character of the community that has developed over time. Public space has had a new renaissance in New York City, but here in Battery Park City is where it started."

As part of BPCA’s phased re-opening of its facilities, the BPC Ball Fields are now open to the public in accordance with New York State’s Sports and Recreation Guidelines. The fields are open 8:00AM – 9:00PM daily.

No permit is required to use the fields during Open Field hours. Open Field hours for the month of July can be found here.

To reserve a slot on the BPC Ball Fields please file a permit application here.

And as always, please take steps to protect the community’s health and well-being:

– Keep a safe social distance – at least six (6) feet – from others

– Wear a mask in public when you cannot maintain a safe distance from others

– Avoid close contact, such as shaking hands, hugging, and kissing

– Wash hands often or use a hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available
