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 is currently under construction. When completed, this park area will offer something for everyone. A grassed open space along the bay encompassed by a tree-shaded pathway will provide the perfect space to simply relax, or to throw a frisbee or softball, while a new playground area will make this park ideal for the entire family. Basketball enthusiasts will enjoy two courts to shoot some hoops, while shared use asphalt tennis / pickleball courts will appeal to the racquet enthusiasts. A new addition to the Ocean Bowl Skate Park, a popular spot for skateboarders and inline skaters, will provide street skate opportunities to augment the existing pool bowl, vert ramp, mini ramp and concrete street area. Directly on the bay, Chicago Avenue’s Victorian themed “Bayside Boardwalk” area will remain an ideal location for fishing and crabbing.
