Buckingham Field ( BBN softball field)Fresh Pond Parkway
Buckingham FieldBuckingham field is located on Fresh Pond Parkway just opposite the New Cambridge Water Works Building between Huron Ave. and the Concord Ave. rotary.
From Route 2
At the end of the highway portion of Route 2 E you will come to the Alewife T Stop. Continue on Rte. 2 past two lights, up over the bridge to the rotary at the Ground Round. Continue around the rotary to 9-oclock, following most of the traffic. At the next rotary, approximately 200 yards, stay to the right and once out of the rotary immediately move into the left lane. The field is on the left just past the next traffic light which is in front of the auto dealership and often blinking.
Continue past the school with the Nicholas Athletic Center on your left. After going through the light immediately in front of the school you will come up to a fork in the road with traffic lights at Mt. Auburn St. Stay to the right and continue up the hill through two more lights; Brattle St. and Huron Ave. You need to stay in the right lane all along this stretch. Once past Huron Ave. continue down the hill and just after it turns to the right you will come across the field on your right. See parking directions above.
There is a parking lot at the field but be very careful taking that left into the lot. If you happen to miss the lot continue to the next light and take Huron Ave. and take a left. You can't take this left between 4 and 7 PM. Once you are on Huron Ave. take your first left on to Larch Road and park on the street.
The only toilets at the field are Port-o-Jons and there is also no pay phone.
