The girls and I come to this park when are tired of the "regulars." Located above the new Columbus Square, this playground has all the classics (swings, monkey bars). One of my favorite aspects is the wide space between jungle gyms, perfect for playing tag or practicing scooter skills. Since the park is attached to a basketball court, a soccer field, and a handball court there is plenty of people traffic. The lack of benches makes it hard to find a place to put your things down, but the proximity to the library (half a block!) really makes up for it. There's nothing like going straight from the swings to a good story time.
