Vincent F. Albano/Mary Collins Playscape


This particular playground is called a playscape, I'm guessing because it is elevated from the rest of the park. Because there are lots of non-kid adults using the park space, the separation is a good thing.  The playground is small and quiet which can be a good thing.  We had the whole space to ourselves so there was no line at the gymnast rings.  Sometimes if there is another kid waiting Annie will feel too pressured and not enjoy swinging her feet as much.  The lack of benches in the playscape really bothered me.  We had to put our stuff on the ground and we didn't stay for snack.
