Not Your Nanny's Review

Playground Papa's Review

This neighborhood playground is focused on a large piece of climbing equipment, but offers a lot of choice.

There were a lot of different levels to climb on and different ways of navigating the space. It was a bit worn, but generally in good condition and giving off that mid-1990s suburban mall vibe. 

The one main flaw was that the two sides of the equipment were connected by monkey bars. With kids hanging off of these, other children running around the equipment from ladder to slide often found themselves running into dangling legs. 

Overall it was an interesting collection of things to climb on, and a lot to do for what was a relatively minor neighborhood play area. 

What is somewhat unusual is there were several plastic riding toys that seemed to have been abandoned here for anyone to use. While we've seen that sort of thing outside the city, its less common here. 

Since the whole playground is set to close for three years while a nearby building is under construction, it feels almost silly to be writing this review.

About the Playground

The playground is a Privately Owned Public Space,  like Zuccotti Park where Occupy Wall Street took over during the 2011 protests. Construction of a nearby building will cause the park to be closed, and incredibly, despite the fact that this park is in great condition, part of that closure includes renovating the park. It's a great illustration of how wealthy neighborhoods hoard resources while starving poorer neighborhoods. The park will be closed for up to three years when it finally begins.
