Created in 1929, Cypress Street Park, which included Kelly Field, gained considerable attention in 1946 as a spring training practice field for the Montreal Royals, a minor league team for the Brooklyn Dodgers. On March 17, Jackie Robinson, a new member of the Royals, integrated professional baseball in a game at City Island Ballpark between the Royals and the Dodgers. But throughout that spring, the Royals and the Dodgers practiced at Kelly Field, much to the delight of the neighborhood's black residents. Cypress Street Park also has a historic marker for iconic baseball players.
