DESCRIPTION

Despite its name, Ancient Playground is one of Central Park’s most recently reconstructed playgrounds. Just north of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the playground’s climbing pyramids, obelisk and sundial were inspired by the museum’s collection of Egyptian Art. More information from the website:

Play Features:
In the main play area, pyramid-shaped climbers with slides and tunnels are linked by concrete bridges. Additional wooden climbers are ideal for older children who love to climb and explore. For younger children, the playground has an obelisk-shaped structure set in a sandbox. Bucket, tire and strap swings accommodate children of all ages.

Water Features:
Ancient Playground has two user-activated water features. One is integrated into the main climbing structure: water runs from a central obelisk across two bridges and cascades like a mini-waterfall into an open area with water jets. The other is a small semi-circular area for younger children with spray nozzles set into a wall.
