Located in between East Foster and Laurel streets, this massive playground has it all. Positioned at the far end of the park, you'll find a baseball, softball and soccer field. And for younger children, there's a sandbox, jungle gym, swings and two woodchip playgrounds. Situated in the middle of the commons is a fenced-in, paved area, painted to look like a racetrack, where children can ride their tricycles. Next to that is a basketball court.
Make sure you get to this park early. Even though there is plenty of street parking, this park gets pretty crowded on a nice day.
Organized teams must request a field permit from the Melrose Park Department before using the city fields, by calling 781-662-9511.
