43. Marconi Plaza — Southeast

07 marconi SE

Zora and I visited this playground on a cold winter’s day and, even though South Broad Street is just paces away, it’s a very secluded, lovely playground.  I showed off a bit on the hemispheric dome, dangling upside down and swinging Zora who firmly grasped my wrists.  There’s the usual structure, too, but two unique items: one, a strange tri-arch system and two, a five-swing set.  It’s in much better shape than the sister playground in Marconi Plaza on the other side of South Broad Street.  Certainly one of our favorite South Philly neighborhood playgrounds.
