On the southern side of FDR Park you'll find Ashburn Fields, named for Phillies' outfielder and National Baseball Hall of Famer Richie Ashburn. This two-field complex is without rival in Philadelphia. The regulation size field regularly hosts collegiate play and championship games and an accompanying Little League field offers area youngsters a "big league" experience.

On the northern side of the park you'll find several additional baseball/softball fields which are often used by locals for less formal games.

The park also has a large number of tennis courts which are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
