This is a spacious and diverse playground on the Upper East Side. Hope you can join us!
Here’s a summary about this playground from one of our NYC Dads Group members…
My first impression upon entering the park was that it was beautiful and well maintained. Jeremy (my son) and I walked by an outstanding dog park filled with large dogs playing in the sand with their owners. We loved that very much. We could see opposite from where we were standing that there was a water hose flowing with water to quench the thirst of the big dogs. Next, we found a basketball court and finally, just a little bit up the hill, we found the playground. As we entered the playground, my first thoughts were “wow there is a lot going on here.” For the most part, I have found many playgrounds have the same straight-line view from play area to play area. Not this time, this was different! Whoever designed this park mapped it out perfectly. As we walked in, the first thing to see was a toddler swing area complete with 12 swings, an infant climbing area followed by a few benches to sit, and a sand lot for children to play. For the bigger kids there was a separate enclosed park, taller more advanced climbing places to swing and slide down. Continuing around the circle, we can see a large spiral slide where my son and I took turns sliding down and climbing up. He had the better deal with the slide because he sat on my lap while I took the bruises on the way down. I hit a bump every time! Next, could be found a bouncing bridge and set of chain monkey bars and two more slides. One was made of individual rollers and the other was a shorter metal slide. I was very impressed by the built in seats that could be found in the slide towers. My son kept asking me to sit with him. Of course, I did. After the slide towers, we could see the four swings for bigger kids. Lastly, were the Men and Women’s bathrooms. In the center of the playground was a very large sprayground play area where children can get wet in the sprinklers that are built into the ground.
We enjoyed this playground immensely. Dads and parents- you will not find a baby changing station in the bathroom. I will rate this park a best five out of five. I love this park. A must visit place for you and yours. – Miguel Salamanca, NYC Dads Group
