Robert Bendheim Playground (Central Park)




I really like this playground. Wedged between the Upper East Side and Harlem, this Central Park playground is hub of diversity.  The 3 jungle gyms are connected by bridges, which allow kids to run from one spot to the next.  And from this park hopping journey I have come to discover the greatness of jungle gyms with ramps.  The ramps allow tots to easily climb as well as let older kids run freely throughout the structure.  The openness of the playground makes the whole area visible and the surrounding trees bring in a plethora of shade.  I think after reviewing a slew of less-than-stellar places, the Robert Bendheim playground is a breath of fresh air.
