Tarr-Coyne Wild West Playground
This western-themed playground features wooden play structures resembling a frontier town.
Central Park Conservancy reconstructed Tarr-Coyne Wild West Playground in 2014 - 2015 to modernize the playground’s infrastructure, create separate play spaces designated for different age groups (from 2 to 12), improve playground accessibility for visitors with disabilities, and improve the playground’s connection to the Park landscape.
The reconstruction of Tarr-Coyne Wild West Playground is part of Central Park Conservancy’s Plan for Play, Central Park Conservancy’s first comprehensive plan created to guide the reconstruction and enhancement of each of Central Park’s 21 playgrounds.
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.
