Rudin Family Playground

Rudin Family Playground

Just steps from Central Park West is the lovely Rudin Family Playground. At its center is a large, wisteria-covered trellis dividing the playground into two play areas; parents and caregivers can often be found sitting in its shade. The entryway includes spots to play checkers and chess, and leads into a playground with tire and bucket swings, a sandbox, water spray, and three climbing structures.
