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.




On Monday, July 11, we launched the “Oh SNAP!” educational campaign with a live mural painting on a Greenmarket, Co. delivery truck. The “Oh SNAP!” campaign was designed to draw attention to the fact that GrowNYC’s network of Greenmarkets accept electronic benefits cards (EBT) and shoppers can use their SNAP benefits to purchase farm-fresh produce from the region’s mid-sized family farmers.

  • Greenmarket

    Our network of farmers markets, Youthmarkets, Fresh Food Box pick-ups, and Greenmarket Co. ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food.

  • Recycle

    We blanket the five boroughs with resources like textile and food scrap collection, Stop 'N' Swaps, and free training to make waste reduction easy for all.

  • Garden

    We build and rejuvenate community & school gardens in all 5 boroughs, and support even more gardens through volunteer days, technical assistance, school garden grants, & more.

  • Teach

    We foster future environmental stewards by providing 60,000 children each year with programs that provide meaningful interactions with the natural environment.
