Mid Bronx Desperadoes Community Park

1700 Southern Blvd. [map]
Morrisania, Bronx
Founded in 1980

Originally named Mid Bronx Desperadoes Community Park but since renamed Seabury Park, this site is open daily in good weather. Community members are welcome to use the basketball court and BBQ area. There are various ornamental plantings throughout the garden. A beautiful scenic mural is painted on the wall of the adjacent building. The mural depicts the crew that worked on building the park.




Inclement weather in the city or in the greater region does affect markets;  markets may close early, or snow-bound farmers may not be able to make it into the city.
