Safari Playground


safari playground with water and hippos

 

Adventures await at Safari Playground, where children can climb over, under, and around sculptures of hippopotamuses in the “river” of the playground floor. Winding their way across the canoe sculpture, water spray feature, and climbing mounds, these young adventurers take the trip of a lifetime — without leaving New York City. Safari Playground is on the top of a hill, with views down toward the Reservoir.
