Cricket

Did you know that Van Cortlandt Park has the most cricket fields in one park in the United States?

Cricket teams are traditionally called 'clubs' and their members hail from ancestries that were at one time dominated by the British Empire. Cricket is popular among Caribbean, Australian, East Indian and Pakistani communities. Players dress in 'cricket whites,' the standard uniform for the game. Today, the ten cricket fields on the Parade Ground are officially opened with natural grass and new irrigation.

Our eleventh field is still at the Stables entrance to the park.
