Wetherell Estate Park, also known as Duffy Field, contains a newly installed playground and renovated little league field.
In 1944, this parcel of 12.88 acres was transferred from jurisdiction of the Bureau of Streets. In 1967, 5.6 acres were used for the WNEB Broadcast Tower.
If baseball isn't your kids' favorite activity, they'll be sure to find something to enjoy at the playground. Parents can find a shady bench to sit and watch the little ones swing, slide, climb, run around and much more!
The Duffy Field playground is dedicated to the loving memory of Harold "Mickey" Bailin through the generosity of Maurice and Ben Bailin.
