Oakland Park, New Jersey

Oakland Park was the name used for a ballpark used by the New York Giants for two games in 1889.[1]

While the team was evicted from the Polo Grounds, the Giants split their season's home games between the St. George Cricket Grounds in Staten Island and Oakland Park in Jersey City, New Jersey. The park was located at the corner of Oakland and Hoboken Avenues. The games were played on April 24 and April 25 against the Boston Braves. The games were split between the two teams.
