This is a great playground. It’s an almost duplicate of the nearby playground at Alain Locke Elementary School. The afternoon we visited, the sun shone bright in the sky and a rambunctious group of four kids played a spirited game of dodge ball among the playground. But what makes it really welcoming are the four picnic tables and gazebo surrounding the play area. That plus the nearby basketball courts would make for a great place to host a family reunion or large gathering. And although the trees aren’t that big, there are six of them, and they’re growing. Just give them a few years. The only downside is that, even by Philly standards, there was an unseemly amount of trash littered about.
