Playcape: An unconventional, adventurous space featuring a large sandpit, a treehouse, concrete fortresses and pyramids, climbing bars, low concrete walls, and sprinklers in the middle of a mini amphitheater.
Safety notes: While larger and more challenging than the adjacent Tots Playground, this playground is still suitable for younger children.
Public restrooms: No. The nearest facilities are on the terrace of the old Tavern on the Green, across W. 67th St.
Food & drink: There are hot dog carts sprinkled throughout Central Park. There is also a Le Pain Quotidien nearby, and during the spring and summer months gourmet food trucks (Pera Turkish Tacos, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream) may be found at Tavern on the Green.
