9. Rowan House Playground

This is one of those playgrounds that’s probably private, but last summer, Zora and I were hanging out in Saunders Park, right near here, listening to a jazz concert and she saw this playground peaking out over the shrubbery to the north of Saunders Park and, well, I had to take her.  Rowan House is a transitional housing program run by the People’s Emergency Center.  The playground is pretty traditional, except for the chain spider web climber.  That’s a nice touch.
