BPC Ball Fields

The Battery Park City Ball Fields provide ample space for community sports such as softball, kickball, Ultimate Frisbee, lacrosse, football, and soccer. Although the majority of time is set aside for youth play, adults are also welcome, particularly in the summer months. The latest artificial turf, installed by the Battery Park City Authority in 2013, uses an elastomer, virgin rubber product as fill, which offers a more resilient play surface compared to the standard recycled rubber crumbs used on many other turf fields. This durability optimizes the field’s use by the community, as there is considerably less “down time” required for maintenance. The synthetic grass of the turf is made of recyclable polyethylene material. The two baseball fields are adjacent to each other with moveable netting available to separate them during games or to create additional practice spaces when needed. Permits are required for public use. For more information on the Ball Fields hours of operation and permit applications, click here.
