Crotona Park is located between the Claremont and Charlotte Gardens neighborhoods and is the home of the Carey Leads Center for Tennis and Learning. The park features various large trees including black cherry, hickory, sassafras, sweetgum, and 23 others, and is divided by Claremont Parkway and Crotona Avenue. The Open Run course starts between the football fields and tennis courts and passes 3.3-acre Indian Lake, home to ducks, turtles, and many species of fish.
