West 110th Street Playground

The West 110th Street Playground is well-known for its setting, a small valley bounded on one side by dramatic rock outcrops and surrounded by mature trees.

Its open design includes areas with swings, various climbers, and a water spray feature. The playground is located near several landscapes with numerous opportunities for children, including the Harlem Meer and the North Woods—an ideal place for exploring and nature study.

Central Park has 21 playgrounds that are unique in design and character. Most of them were built in the 1930s as part of a system of playgrounds located along the Park perimeter. The Central Park Conservancy regularly updates these spaces to include new equipment and infrastructure that reflect changing ideas about children’s play and safety and accessibility standards. Since 2011, the Conservancy has been working to rebuild or renovate all the Park’s playgrounds, with the goal of bringing each of them up to the same standard of excellence at the same time and focusing on making them feel more connected to the Park’s landscapes and experiences.
