Our Phil Rizzuto Park review

3 Reasons my Family Loves this Elizabeth Park

  • Yankee fans will enjoy being at a park named after a legend and reading the plaque at the front and the baseball and baseball bat statues! The entrance alone makes for some great photo ops!
  • The playground structure suits all different abilities and the round swing is great for multiple kids! It wasn’t on when we visited but there’s a sprinkler there to cool down after a fun day of play.
  • Phil Rizzuto Park has a large soccer field that hosts plenty of local teams, so there’s always something going on. The path offers a fit circuit so while your kids play you can get your exercise.
