Athletic Fields and Tennis Courts
Playing fields for baseball, football, and soccer are located in two main areas: in the Leakin Park section at Sloman Drive and Windsor Mill Road; and in the Gwynns Falls Park section at Leon Day Park at 1200 Franklintown Road.
Four tennis courts are available on a first-come-first-serve basis for daylight tennis. Pick-up doubles matches are played almost every evening about 5:00 p.m. during the summer. Parking is adjacent to the courts at the Eagle Drive entrance to the park, just off Windsor Mill Road.
Outdoor tables are available near Orianda House and the children's playground, along the park's Eagle Drive access road off Windsor Mill Road, as well as the Ben Cardin Pavillion (pictured). Picnickers may drive their car around the circle to unload their picnic supplies, but should park in the entrance parking lot. These facilities are available daily until dark. Group reservations must be made by contacting Department of Recreation and Parks.
