The North Meadow Recreation Center loans field day kits with presentation of photo ID. Visitors can borrow a kit with a variety of balls, bats, frisbees, and jump ropes. In the spring of 2006, the Central Park Conservancy constructed a new Soil, Water, and Ecology Lab at the North Meadow Recreation Center to monitor the soil and water in Central Park more closely. Outfitted with completely new equipment, the Lab tends to the specific biological and chemical needs of the Park.
The interior has a community room used for classes, gatherings, and recreational activities; as well as basketball and handball courts.
