Tarr Family Playground

Tarr Family Playground

At Tarr Family Playground, just west of the North Meadow, young park-goers can scout from the treehouse, climb up a pyramid, or journey across a central bridge stretching over a “lake” of sand. The sand marks the boundary between two areas: one designed for preschoolers, and one for older children. Head east to find the North Meadow Recreation Center, where kids can borrow Field Day Kits with balls, bats, frisbees, and jump ropes.
