After going to several old playgrounds with chipped jungle gyms and rusty swings, Fred Samuel playground was a breath of fresh air. This park is definitely neighborhood hang out. There are people of all ages in the park and that makes the overall atmosphere pleasant. The children section is toward the back of the park and it is new and fun. Similar to the Hudson River Park playground, Fred Samuel has something for everyone. Because of the popularity of the park there is some litter, but a staff on hand was there with a broom and a dustbin.
