This tiny playground is tucked into a shady corner of the east side of Central Park overlooking the Harlem Meer.
The playground is designed for younger children. The small size sandpit was in good condition though, and was the focal point of activity for many of the children playing there.
The swings were well off onto one side, and the water feature was mostly separated from the rest of the equipment too, set out at the back end of the playground. This would make it very easy to keep a child dry in the middle of the summer.
The climbing equipment was notably small, and even on a crisp February afternoon was too crowded. Presumably on a warmer day this playground would be overwhelmed by small children.
There are lovely views of the Harlem Meer, and one trick to getting our toddler motivated to leave was the promise of looking at the ducks. And fruit snacks, but that was just what I had in my pocket.
Overall our toddler mostly wanted to play in the sand, and wasn't all that concerned with the actual playground equipment.
First built in the 1930s, the playground is the smallest in Central Park. It was reconstructed in 1991, but maybe not improved.
