Other than the Dodgers at Ebbets Field, we had the Empire Roller Rink, Gardners Bowling Lanes, Farragut and St George Pools, in my area we had Marine Park which had many baseball fields and teams, a track for running and bicycling, a CONCRETE playground with a wading pool for kiddies, and many tennis courts for which you needed permits. Since we were near the water, we had fishing and limited bathing. James Madison High School had fields for football and baseball, courts for tennis and handball, and a free indoor pool in the summer. What facilities were available in your area?
