Forepaugh Park was a baseball ground located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at Broad and Dauphin Streets in North Philadelphia. The ground was home to the Philadelphia Athletics of the American Association, and the Philadelphia Quakers of the Players League in 1890.[1]

The location was named for Adam Forepaugh, the owner of the Forepaugh Circus.( Rich Westcott, Philadelphia's Old Ballparks, Temple University Press, 1996, p. 6.) The circus' previous site had been the site occupied by the Union Association club, Keystone Park.
