21. Lea Elementary School Locust Street Playground

I’ve been taking Zora past this playground since she was an infant since this is right outside our polling place.  But for the first year, she wasn’t all the interested in playing on the playground itself.    There are a couple of playgrounds in the area that have maps of the United States painted on the pavement (eg, Martha Washington Elementary School and (partially concealed beneath the rubber mat) Wilson Alexander Elementary School) but this is the most vibrant, most colorful.  This playground might not be as cool as the other elementary school playgrounds in the area, but Lea Elementary School is the only elementary school that we visited that has TWO separate playgrounds.  The other is on the other side of the building near 47th and Spruce Streets.
