Another view of the Macombs Dam Park playground. Since the new Yankee Stadium was built on 24 acres of Macombs Dam Park, very little remains of the original park except this playground. To the left is Heritage Field, a new baseball field constructed as part of the Yankees' promise to build new athletic fields to replace the ones that were sacrificed to the new stadium.
