Playground: This interactive space features pumps and levers that, in theory, will pump water to flow along a miniature canal. On our visit, though, one pump wasn’t working and the other did not pump with much force. Still, there was enough activity to entertain and amuse while waiting for the Intrepid to open.
Playground safety notes: The surface is all rock and water, so take care not to slip. The Hudson River provides a cool breeze in hot weather and surrounding trees give shade.
Public restrooms: Yes, by PD O’Hurley’s. Both men’s and ladies’ rooms have changing tables.
Food & drink: PD O’Hurley’s is on site and offers both indoor and outdoor seating.
