Hugging a short block of Sixth Avenue, the bright blue and green playground pops up under the shade of grand mature trees, which may have been there since the playground first opened in 1935. Near the entrance is an organized tangle of vertical and twisted nets as well as different stepping pads, both stable and wobbly suspended, making for a great obstacle course. A couple of these climbers are a challenge – especially the arched net that reaches straight up about 8 feet high and the suspended tunnel that looks like detached caterpillar segments. There are two sets of monkey bars – one that curves high in an arch and a lower one that attaches to a bridge leading to a mid-sized slide and small climbing wall. All of this is aimed at an older crew (recommended ages 5 – 12).
