Manhattan's green getaway is a lifesaver for local families with antsy tykes. The Olmsted and Vaux–designed space brims with kid-friendly attractions, including an ice skating rink in the winter, year-round performances at the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre, an Egyptian-themed playground, summer concert and theater series, the famed carousel, and plenty of free and cheap workshops throughout the gargantuan park.
