Not Your Nanny's Review

A hidden gem on a very busy road.

I can’t tell you how many times we’ve been at the intersection of Flushing and Bushwick Aves, and I’d never noticed this playground until we glimpsed it from a different playground up on the hill. It’s a shame! It’s pretty nice, and a steady stream of families from the local housing projects keeps it busy until dark.

There is also a formal wading pool attached that’s open in the summer. The equipment felt a little dated but there was nothing wrong with it, and it does feel very insulated from the busy streets nearby. We will definitely be back to check out the pool when it’s open!

Playground Papa's Review

Not every playground is going to be a banger, but sometimes basic functionality is all you need. 

We hadn't really seen this playground before but its visible from the Garden playground across the street, especially since Beaver Noll is a bit elevated. We weren't disappointed. 

There's nothing exceptional about this playground but it's a simple and easy place for kids to play. It could be a little more secured with gates to prevent kids from running out onto Flushing Avenue, but otherwise it was a solid place to bring our toddler. He was entertained right up until that moment he was hangry for some snacks or dinner and started throwing a little fit. 

A lot of the playgrounds in our neighborhood have similar equipment, so there was nothing revolutionary to report, but the old trees around it made it a comfortable place to sit. There were a few kids playing but it wasn't crowded like other playgrounds we've been to. 

It's great if you're nearby anyway and an improvement from the Garden playground across the street.
