Constructed in the 1980s, Leydecker Park features a softball field, three tennis courts, a basketball court and a…More children's playground with swings and a climbing structure. The outdoor facilities are lit only for scheduled activities or rentals. Free parking is available in the adjacent Harbor Bay Landing lot.
On non-holidays, the three picnic tables can be rented for private parties, as can the softball field from April 1 through October 31. Pricing varies with the size of the group, non-profit status and Alameda residency.
Leydecker hosts an ever-changing menu of classes and activities for all ages: Tiny Tots for the pre-school crowd; engineering and construction for elementary schoolers; tennis, softball and flower arranging for adults. Consult the seasonal activity guide mailed out by the Alameda Park and Recreation Department or visit www.arpdeplay.com.
Leydecker Field is also one of the sites for ARPD's free Starlight Movies in the Park.
