23. Belmont Charter School Playground

This playground has seen some better days.  Bad graffiti adorns most of the structures.  But there are some great features.  It has an old school double rainbow monkey bars seen at no other playground we’ve been to, a rope climber just like the one at the University City High School playground, and a purple climber similar to the ones at Malcolm X playground.  The real surprise, though, was seeing the turtle climber, just like the one in Clark Park.  Surrounding the playground are two tennis courts (in need of repair), a basketball court, and lots of open asphalted playing area.
