Granahan Playground sits on a little hill and offers a surprising view of the Philadelphia skyline. But that’s not the best part of the playground. It has one of the largest connected structures with a bridge hat trick: a curved bridge, a straight bridge, and a bouncy bridge. It has three pentagon structures with interior stairs and a dozen climbers. It has rings, monkey bars (including 2 on the bottom of one of the bridges), and a chin up bar. And that’s just the larger of the two structures. Oddly for such an otherwise well-kept playground, half of the eight swings are missing. There’s also a small sprayground, two hockey rinks (one appears to have been turned into a skate park, but there were no skaters when we visited), and lots of fields. And it’s also home of the world famous Overbrook Monarchs!
