Walker Park

Walker Park in Staten Island
Walker Park: This 5.28-acre park is located on Delafield Place, between Davis and Bard Avenues in the Randall Manor section of Staten Island’s North Shore. Walker Park is infamously known as the site of the oldest continually operating cricket club in the United States (Staten Island Cricket and Tennis Club, circa 1872), and the site of the first lawn tennis court in the United States, which was built in 1873.

Walker Park was originally known as Livingston Park; the name changed to honor Lieutenant Randolph Walker Jr., a local cricket club member who died in World War I.

Currently, the park has operating baseball fields, cricket fields, playgrounds, tennis courts, basketball courts, football fields and soccer fields. It is not uncommon to find youth sports activities taking place daily in the fall and spring, and is also the site of many programs sponsored by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, such as free tennis lessons for children and fitness classes for adults.
