Not Your Nanny's Review

Playground Papa's Review

The best part of this playground is that it was mostly purple. 

Admittedly our fun was cut short by a little drizzle, but overall this playground's best feature was the bright purple color– a rarity in the city. It's the main reason we sought this one out. The rain made the slides wet, although they weren't anything out of the ordinary. 

We still managed to have fun, and our toddler did a lot of practice on the monkey bars, which of course meant me holding him up while he moved his hands across the bars. This was a monkey bar heavy park, with several different setups, so this is the place to go if you want to hang around Bed-Stuy (yes, that was a Dad-joke). 

There are some strange ladders-to-nowhere at this playground. These things are always confusing as to how designers expect kids to play. Are they just supposed to climb up five rungs and come down? 

The playground connects to the two cross streets, so there were lots of people cutting through the area. At least the play area was fenced in, minimizing the little escape artist's attempts to flee. 

This was perfectly functional, but overall the playground could have had a lot more equipment in the space. The rubber mats on the playground surface weren't in great condition either. If I lived across the street I would probably frequent this playground, but nearby Jesse Owens playground is so much better than this one we'd always walk there instead.
