150. Samuel Rec Center

42 samuelThis slice of playground has two play structures and a large red and blue padded play area.  On the day we visited, it was grey and a little bit cold.  It seems like it would be a much nicer place to be once the leaves are on the trees.  Instead, I’ll remember this playground mostly because there is a large cemetery across the street, not because of the equipment itself.  For a little nostalgia, check out out the 1962 photo of the swing sets at the playground posted below.
