Fitzpatrick Playground was a fine little rec center playground surrounded by tall chain link fence to keep you from wandering out into busy Academy Road. There’s a somewhat rare three-person see saw here which was cool because Susanna came along on this trip, too, so we all had a seat. Just on the other side of the basketball court is a floor hockey rink which seems to be pretty standard at playgrounds in Northeast Philly. An old sprayground arch is in the center of this playground but, sadly, it seems to now be defunct.
