Tarr-Coyne Tots Playground

Tots Playground

For adventurers not yet big enough for Adventure Playground, head next door to Tarr-Coyne Tots Playground—a space where our youngest Park visitors can swing, climb, and explore in a space made just for them.

The playground came to be known as “Tots Playground” when it was redesigned in 1968 by architect Richard Dattner to serve younger visitors. It houses multiple areas filled with sand and smaller-scale play structures.
