120. Weccacoe Playground

weccacoeThe Weccacoe Playground was hopping on the first Saturday of Spring that we visited.  The equipment was fun, but the big draw was an epic hide and go seek game that we played over the entire lot.  There were some neat hiding spaces behind the playground building, behind trees, under a discarded ping-pong table, and near the wisteria (?) covered fence surround the tennis courts.  All in all, Weccacoe is a fine neighborhood playground.  But it looks like it might be even better if the plans put forward by the Friends of Weccacoe Playground (see link below) are carried out.  One complication?  Much of the southwest corner of the playground lies above the 18th & 19th century cemetery of Mother Bethel A.M.E.
