Wild West Playground
This western-themed playground features wooden play structures resembling a frontier town.
In addition to the wood structures, which incorporate slides, steps and poles, the playground has bucket swings.
A sprinkler sends water into a narrow channel that weaves through the center of the play area, leading to a circular space that steps down into a small amphitheater where caregivers can watch children at play. Additional nozzles set into the steps spray water close to ground level.
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.
