Playground Papa's Review

We started the day at the New York State Trolley museum, but after our toddler demanded a playground, we ended up here. 

The playground was filled with kids of all ages, including some older teenagers who looked like they had nothing better to do. The swings were set back far from the main playground, which had the advantage that the teenagers were more likely to hang out there. 

The main structure was entertaining for our toddler, but the spaces were pretty tight. He wanted us to slide with him, and help him up on some of the ladders he was too small for, and maneuvering around the spaces was difficult. He did like the twisty slides. 

The emphasis though is on various climbing structures with rock walls and other things built with rope. I still don't understand why so many modern playground designs rely on the rope structures. They don't seem fun. I assume this is a cost consideration, but the rope is ruining playgrounds. 

There was a broken spring-loaded motorcycle bouncing toy. That was a little disappointing, and I hope its repaired by the nex time we're in town. 

There wasn't much protection from the sun. We had arrived late in the afternoon and the shadows were getting long already, but for most of the day this playground is getting direct sun. 

This playground seems accessible to the local community and an asset for local families. It wasn't a destination in itself, but it was a great stop to tired out our kid before heading back to the city.  

The Trolley Museum 

Kingston offers a lot of activities, and it's the gateway to Catskills hiking. But with a toddler obsessed with trains and Daniel Tiger's trolley, the museum like a definite destination.

The state trolley museum mainly consists of a short ride from the museum out to the Hudson River. The trolley tracks are also a walking path. There were good views of the lighthouse. The museum rail yard also has some old rolling stock, like a PATH Train salvaged from 9/11 and older subways and buses, although these are not in good repair. It was the highlight for our toddler to ride the trolley though. http://www.tmny.org/
