East 72nd Street Playground


 

This playground's low concrete walls and numerous steps and seats define the play space, as well as providing a variety of levels and surfaces to climb and explore.

Note:
The East 72nd Street Playground will close for construction in late March and will reopen in summer 2015. While the playground is closed, please visit the following nearby playgrounds: James Michael Levin Playground at East 76th Street, or Billy Johnson Playground at East 67th Street.

Features:
Play features include bucket swings, a wooden tree house and a granite-faced climbing pyramid with slides and tunnels. A net climber and tire swings are set in a large sand area at the center of the playground.

Water Feature:
A wall-mounted water feature sprays into a sunken area surrounded by steps and round concrete seats.
