De Witt Clinton Park

W. 52 St. To W. 54 St., 11 Ave. To 12 Ave.

De Witt Clinton Park is a great neighborhood park.  In the Erie Canal Playground one can find play equipment, safety surfacing, painted games, swings, benches, drinking fountains, concrete play mules (named Sal, Pal and Gal) and a frog spray shower within the play area, and a dog run caters to the canine set. Maria's Perennial Garden features flowers of the 1800s, rock garden species, and plants that attract birds, bees and butterflies.

Some of the park's biggest attractions are its sports fields: locals come by to play basketball, baseball, soccer, and handball.

Great outdoor park. Baseball field is lit up like daylight during evening hours. Synthetic turf. 5 basketball hoops good quality but some of the nets need to be replaced. Great playground for children. Nice seating area near the dog park with tables and chairs. Very pretty. There are even public bathrooms which is nice if you are playing ball or just around the City and need to wash your hands/use a bathroom. The dog park is ok too. A separate part for small dogs and a decent size for larger dogs. It's fully fenced with double entry gates so you can unleash before you enter the main dog run. The down side is this dog park is all pavement and no dirt or soft surface for dogs to run on. Nice community, mix of dogs and people. Overall, this park is a terrific community/neighborhood asset! Open until 11 pm.

This is a small but nice park next to The Daily Show studio in Manhattan. A decent place to hang out for an hour or two.

Small community park. Nice family gatherings and community movies on big screen.

Decent synthetic turf for soccer. There are regular and small soccer goals to use.
