Playground for All Children, Queens

Built in 1984, this Queens playground designed to accommodate children with and without disabilities was the first of its kind in the country. A network of wheelchair-accessible ramps connect various jungle gyms, with Braille signs marking the way. A mini village beckons kids with a one-room schoolhouse, complete with a chalk blackboard, a fire station, a house with flower boxes, and vehicles like a fire engine and a bus to drive, all cozy nooks for play-and-pretend. Basketball courts surrounded by amphitheater seating, plus a faux river encircling a sprinkler area with ample shading, ensure unfettered fun for every child who visits.
