blank dot

This historic park is located along the Hudson near the Dunn Memorial Bridge. In the 1880s, its baseball field was the site of the first major league Grand Slam in baseball history. Roger Connor was the first player to hit a grand slam in Major League Baseball history on Sept. 10, 1881, for the National League Troy Trojans in a game against the Worcester Ruby Legs. A plaque commemorating the event was placed at the park in 2019. The park has access to the Hudson, tennis courts, playgrounds, and artwork on the bridge walls.
