High Bridge Park

Map
Edgecomb Ave. and Amsterdam Ave., New York, NY , United States

Taking its namesake from the city's oldest standing bridge, this park is wedged between Amsterdam Avenue and the East River. Known for its landmark bridge and tower, Highbridge Park is home to several playgrounds, baseball fields, basketball courts, a dog run, and the Highbridge Recreation Center and Pool. Another well-known spot in the park is Coogan's Bluff, a large promontory extending northward from 155th Street, which overlooked the playing field of the Polo Grounds, once home to New York's Giants and Mets baseball teams.
