Tarr Family Playground

At Tarr Family Playground, 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, the other 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.
