Playscape: Three play structures for toddlers and up, a small sandbox, two water play areas (waterfall on one side, gentler sprinklers on the other) connected by a running brook, shaded seating. Just outside the western end of the playground is a climbable hull of a ship.

Safety notes: There are two separate gates for entry and exit. Otherwise, this is a small, manageable playground.

Public restrooms: Yes.

Food & drink: There is usually a hot dog cart just outside the playground, otherwise there are plenty of restaurants and food shops across West St. in the West Village.
