44. Marconi Plaza — Northwest

08 marconi NWThis is a desolate playground with little shade and lots of trash.  The blue old school geodome monkey bars are pretty cool.  And this is the only time I’ve ever seen three (cf. two or four) swings on one piece of equipment.  But otherwise, I’m afraid there’s not much to commend this playground.  It’s especially odd since there’s a twin playground on the other side of Marconi Plaza, on the other side of Broad Street, that’s much cleaner and nicer.
