Cribbs Field is Verona’s main recreational park/sports field. Located at the intersection of South and Second Avenues in Verona,it contains two baseball fields with bleachers, a full sized basketball court, a batting practice cage,a horseshoe pit, a bocce court, and a children’s playground as well as restroom facilities.
Riverside Park, positioned between Verona’s Arch St. and the Allegheny River, is the smaller of the two parks. It contains a picnic pavilion, a children’s playground, and a dual use, full sized tennis/basketball court. With benches situated among large shade trees overlooking a spectacular view of the Allegheny River, many individuals use the park as a quiet meditative area where they can relax. Both parks are maintained by the Verona Council’s Park and Recreation Committee headed by Councilman Dominic Conte. Under Mr. Conte’s direction, the fields are continuously maintained and groomed by the Verona Maintenance Department and other contracted services as needed.In addition to being used by the community, Cribbs Field is utilized by both the Twin Boros Scoccer Club (TBSC)and the Riverview Atletic Association (RAA) from early Spring until early Fall during the height of the sports season.
Railroad Park is at the heart of Verona right beside the Railroad right beside the municipal building and the famous Mechanic Coffee Company. Enjoy a beautiful view, incredible coffee, and more.
