Visiting Central Park in the Summer: Playground Tour
Central Park: 21 Playgrounds Full of Fun!
Looking for a great place to take the family this summer? Seeking a fun "tour" for your family vacation? Central Park offers many things to do. In this hub, I am focusing on my recommendation to make your visit fun for the entire family by touring the Park's 21 playgrounds. I did this with my daughters in the summer of 2010. We spent four weekends in Central Park and still didn't get to all of the playgrounds. However, the ones we went to provided us with hours of fun. From dawn til dusk, we enjoyed sliding down stone carved slides, running over wooden bridges, and jumping up and down on turf-filled trampolines. We stood under sprinklers, ran through bridges filled with water, and inched through tunnels on our bellies. Talk about making memories that will last a lifetime! Regardless of your age, you will find your inner child as you go back to the days of enjoying the playground. (And the parent in you will get a kick out of all the signs asking you not to steal the grass!)
The following photo journal is just one example of the many fun things you can do in a day-long visit to Central Park. To be fair to the rest of the park, I included photos from our stops between playgrounds, so you can see some of the other things you can enjoy while in the park.
