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.




There’s nothing like coming out of the cavernous Union Square subway station to a canopy of tree branches covered in spring blossoms, the tents of the Greenmarket visible just beyond.

And then there’s the smell…strawberries.

Now you can make one of these delicious strawberry recipes!
