Adventure Playground

Up on a hill by West 67th Street, children are delighted to explore, expedition, and imagine at Adventure Playground.

In the 1960s, a new playground design emerged: adventure-style playgrounds. This type of playground uses interconnected, unique play structures, often made of makeshift materials that are meant to spark creativity and exploration in young Park-goers. Adventure Playground was the first that the Conservancy redesigned in the adventure style, as part of our effort to guide the continued stewardship of Central Park’s 21 playgrounds. With its open feel, small play structures, and abundant shade, the space is perfect for younger children.
