Use this balmy weather as an excuse to act like a kid again and frolic in some sprinklers! The city offers a myriad of them (chances are pretty good that at least one of your local parks has one), but there are some really spectacular water features that you might want to travel a little further to get to. For example, the Ancient Playground at Central Park
is a top pick for its Egypt-inspired design. Rumor is that the Brangelina bunch likes to horse around at the Catbird Playground, a water feature located at the Cark Shurz Park
. for those of you lower downtown who want a view to splash around to, the Teardrop Park at Battery Park City
is about as close to a real beach you can get without visiting Coney Island and boasts ten water-spraying mini geysers.
