Ball Fields

Franklin Park is a great place for an informal ball game with your friends!

The Playstead is the huge field located between White Stadium and the Zoo. Here you can find baseball diamonds, a cricket pitch, and a large open field. The Playstead is used for little league, adult softball leagues, Sunday cricket games, rugby, ultimate frisbee, and BPS sports programs.

Another baseball diamond can be found at Ellicottdale, just down from the Shattuck Picnic Grove. It’s also used by local youth and adult leagues.

To reserve an athletic field, download a park permit application from the City of Boston website.
