DOWNTOWN RECREATION COMPLEX

3rd & 4th Streets

Located between 3rd and 4th Streets bayside and bounded by Philadelphia Avenue at the east and Chicago Avenue on the west, the Downtown Recreation Complex offers something for everyone. A multipurpose, lighted ball field along the bay, as well as a playground area make this park ideal for the entire family. Basketball enthusiasts will enjoy two courts to shoot some hoops. Lights are available for evening tennis play. The Ocean Bowl Skate Park, a popular spot for skateboarders and inline skaters, contains a pool bowl, vert ramp, mini ramp and concrete street area. Directly on the bay, Chicago Avenue’s Victorian themed “Bayside Boardwalk” area is an ideal location for fishing and crabbing.
