Maps with Driving Directions to Catella Park
From points north of Oneonta (Albany) area-
Get off at exit 15 (Main Street) at the bottom of the ramp bear to the right, merge onto Lettis Highway. Follow Lettis Highway to the light at Main Street. You want to be in the left lane, as you will turn LEFT onto Main Street at the light. Immediately put your left signal on to prepare for the next Left (across from the Gas station). You will be following a sign that has a big baseball on it, and the words "Damasche Field". Turn LEFT onto Grand Street, go 300 yards Grand Street, turn slight RIGHT onto Division Street (Octagon House on corner)(and Damasche Field sign). Follow Division Street around and down the hill. As you start down the hill put your left signal on as the next turn is before the very bottom of the short hill. Turn LEFT into Neahwa Park (Damasche Field sign), cross over the rail road tracks, over a small narrow bridge and take an immediate LEFT onto Catella Lane- do not go straight past Damasche Field (big brown fence around it). After you have made the left you will go down long straight road that goes past the U-10 field and another baseball field and under Lettis Highway and into Catella Park. The U-12/14 field is on your right.
From points south of Oneonta (Binghamton area)- This gets a little tricky, use part of U-12 map under the below map and turn into Neahwa park RIGHT at the light not shown on the map below.
Note: there is no such exit for people on I-88 heading south, and there is no way to get on I-88 heading north from this exit, so people coming from the Albany area or heading to the Albany area should not try this.
From points South of Oneonta, Get off Exit 14- Main Street, turn LEFT at the stop sign, go under I-88, stay in the right lane, go past Alfresco's Restaurant (on the right) turn RIGHT at the light onto Neahwa Pl.. Proceed through the flood gate- earthen dam with cement sides, and into Neahwa Park, go around the circle heading straight again on War Memorial Dr. Pass all the recreational softball fields, turn LEFT just past the war memorial, (you can really only go left) follow this to a stop sign. You are now looking at the big brown fence surrounding Damasche Feild- home of the Oneonta Tigers. Proceed until you are just passed the parking lot on your right, Turn RIGHT onto Catella Lane. (if you go straight you will go over a small bridge, over the rail road tracks and leave Neahwa Park) The U-10 field is that green space to your right. To get to the U-12 & U-14 fields keep going past the U-10 field. Pass under Lettis Highway, into Catella Park. The field is on your right.
OBTW if you have to bring other children with you, and they don't feel like watching the game, there is a great Skate Board park, but you have to wear a helmet to use the park, and the rules are enforced. They can walk to it from the field.
