49. Penn Treaty Park

The playground structures are average here, but what really makes it cool is its location.  It’s in a small copse of trees on the side of the grassy Penn Treaty Park.  And it’s right on the river.  While we were visiting, a huge barge came up under the Ben Franklin Bridge and Zora (with me tagging along) ran over to the railing where several older men speaking Russian (or Ukrainian?) were fishing.  One of the best locations for a playground in Philadelphia.
