The Rose Playground sits up on a hill over Lansdowne Avenue. It’s hard to see from below and, if you’re driving, it’s difficult to figure out where to park. A neighborhood playground that tries to hide itself from outsiders? I can’t argue with that. But Zora and I were persistent and we got ourselves there and it was well worth it. There are two structures on two levels. There are a couple things that we had not seen anywhere else (yet): a two-person piece that you could hang on and spin from steering-wheel sized spinners; a hemispheric climbing wall; and an old school see saw with a modern twist. Plus, there are some large old shade trees surrounding the grounds. And one more thing: there’s even an adult playground nearby. Which, to be honest, just looks like exercise.
