68. Eastern State Penitentiary Playground

This is a great neighborhood park, located in the shadow of Eastern State Penitentiary.  It has a gigantic spider web rope climber, plus a sit down booth under the play ground.  It also has a water fountain and a tent that includes a water mister.  The afternoon that Zora and I stopped by, the neighborhood association was holding a small festival on the grassy area to the east of the playground.  It reminded me of my local Cedar Park playground.  Worth the stop by if you’re in the neighborhood.
