103. Cecil B. Moore Rec Center

cecilbmooreI bike past this playground almost every day as I ride up Sedgeley Ave to work.  The playground is tucked behind the rec center building (which itself sits behind the swimming pool), nestled against a giant muralized wall.  The facilities have seen better days–all of the infant swings were missing, trash was strewn about, there was a hole in the fence–but it’s a fine neighborhood spot.  Highlights include a retro double spaceship climber, a concrete turtle, and the painted alphabet on the crack blacktop.
