Adventure Playground

Adventure Playground

Up on a hill at West 67th Street, children are delighted to explore and imagine under the mature trees surrounding Adventure Playground. With its open feel and small play structures, the space is perfect for younger children.

In the 1960s, a new style of playground emerged: adventure-style playgrounds. This type of playground used unique, interconnected play structures often made of makeshift materials meant to spark creativity, energy and exploration in young Park-goers. Adventure Playground was the first to be redesigned in the adventure style in Central Park.
