Macombs Dam Park is a park in the New York City borough of the Bronx. The park lay in the shadow of the old Yankee Stadium when it stood, between Jerome Avenue and the Major Deegan Expressway, near the Harlem River and the Macombs Dam Bridge. The park is administered and maintained by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. The majority of Macombs Dam Park has not been open to the public since August 2006, when construction began on the new Yankee Stadium.
The 28.425-acre (115,030 sq m) park, prior to the stadium construction, featured baseball and softball diamonds, basketball courts, and football and soccer fields. Portions of the park are often used during New York Yankees home games to provide overspill parking for vehicles in an area underserved by garages and other parking facilities.
Dog Friendly Park:
The entire park is an off-leash designated dog park. Certain areas, like the running track are labelled as No Dogs Allowed.
