Diana Ross Playground
Funding for this playground was provided by the singer Diana Ross after her historic concert on the Great Lawn in 1983. Situated at the base of Summit Rock, the highest elevation in the Park, the playground has a verdant backdrop of mature canopy trees.
The playground features a large, wooden play structure with a variety of interconnected play elements, including a climbing net, bridges, firepoles, slides and ladders. The entire structure is set in a large area of sand. The playground also includes bucket swings.
Initiated in 1991 by the Women's Committee of the Central Park Conservancy, Playground Partners is a group of volunteers who ensure that Central Park's 21 playgrounds are kept safe and well maintained.
