West 110th Street Playground
This playground is set in a small valley surrounded by large trees and rock outcrops – a dramatic topography that characterizes the northern part of Central Park. The Conservancy's playground designers chose the playground's colors, layout and forms to blend with the surrounding landscape.
Playground highlights include a sandbox, embankment slide, modern climbers and spinners, tire and bucket swings and a contoured safety surface.
Four granite posts spray water into a centrally located water play area.
The Central Park Conservancy reconstructed the playground in 2006.
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.
