81. Clayborn Lewis Rec Center

04 clayburn-lewisThis small playground is right around the corner from the Philadelphia Zoo, but I’m not going to lie to you.  For the first time, I felt a little uneasy visiting this playground.  We were there on a Sunday morning around 11am and it was packed… with young men drinking beer and smoking up.  Zora didn’t seem to mind, though, and she loved the dragon statute and the bird rocker.  The playground structure itself has a neat and unusual blue climbing wall similar to what exists over at Malcolm X Park (one of our favorites.)  The rec center itself is dominated by a basketball court which is really the focus of the energy in the park.
