This beautiful Battery Park playground has something for all ages. The huge jungle gyms are a great place for kids to meet "park friends"as they run over the bridge or jump on the trampoline net. The little kid section of the park is slightly separated and full of bars to hang on to (for the new walkers). But what sets this park apart from the rest is the pedaling carousel. Powered by the riders, this carousel provides hours of entertainment as well as a great opportunity to practice cooperation skills. Once the girls found the carousel they ignored the rest of the playground. I didn't mind because it's covered with a shaded gazebo. Just take heed, there are signs all over the place warning not to move the carousel any other way but to pedal.
