#16 Aberdeen Park
2230 Eastern Avenue NE (at Evelyn NE) 10.10 ACRES
Aberdeen Park is a great park with all the expected amenities of playground, picnic shelter, bathrooms, splash pad, tennis courts and baseball diamond. It also boosts large open areas with beautiful old trees, some walkways and parking off Diamond Ave.
When visiting today, there were a few families cooking Mother’s Day dinners on a couple of the many grills available while the kids amused themselves on the Kaboom sponsored modern playground equipment. (Look for Kaboom parks throughout the city- their colorful innovative playgrounds are a real treat).
One interesting finding was in the park was an apple and pear orchard, planted in 2011 by community volunteers with the Creston Neighborhood Association. Sign says harvest is available to anyone.
The park is adjacent to the large play field of Aberdeen elementary and middle school to the North East and playground and parking lot of All Saints Academy (Catholic early elementary school) on the East. These 3 contiguous areas give the feeling of a wide-open space in the center of the busy NE residential area just east of Plainfield avenue. Very peaceful!
6 tennis courts available with mini bleachers facing the action!
