Mapleton Park or Mapleton Oval was an urban athletic park in Brooklyn, New York.

The Park[edit]

It existed from at least 1916 to 1920, located at 62nd Street and 20th Avenue. The field was the home of the Mapleton Park Nine baseball team.[1]

The oval may have been named after an old neighborhood name for the area. Today, the legacy of the name Mapleton Park exists in a local synagogue, the Young Israel of Mapleton Park, near 65th Street and Bay Parkway (22nd Avenue).
