I’m not asking for much, just a playground designed with my particular needs and desires in mind. And, you know, fun for my kids.
Nearly three years after SuperStorm Sandy, Andrews Grove is back and a real gem in an area with a bunch of really nice parks.
If you have ever been a child (or had a child) in the Ridgewood/Glendale area of Queens, you have been to Mafera Park. But you probably knew it as The Oval or Farmers’ Oval.

We will, we will, rock you — quite literally — at Smith Memorial Playground in Philadelphia, our latest stop in our week-long celebration of “Summer in Our City Dads Group Cities” and site of the Kidchella children’s rock fest on July 25.
Sometimes simplicity is the best thing. That is why the Joseph E. DeVoy playground in Forest Park, Queens, is not only one of my kids’ favorite parks but mine.
