38. Palumbo Rec Center

04 paumboZora, Zora’s friend, and I were playing a mean game of tag at this playground.  I was ‘it.’  Suddenly, I realized that our game had been joined by all 10 other kids on the playground.  Usually, I nod to other parents on the playground, they nod to me.  But we don’t have a whole lot of interaction.  But at Palumbo, everyone was talking and playing with each other.  Maybe it was an aberrant Saturday afternoon, but I kind of got the feeling that’s how everything was here at Palumbo.  The playground is standard, but felt really neighborly. Also: there are easily accessible bathrooms.  Both are huge pluses.
