The southernmost part of the grounds once home to Yankee Stadium now has a decidedly musical bent, thanks to the 2009 arrival of this design-forward playground. When struck by little hands, metal pipes let off sounds whose pitch depends on the pipe’s length. A square of five panels acts as a musical instrument underfoot, ringing when jumped on. And two large metal saucers aren’t just ethereal to look at but also amplify and focus sounds made between them. Rounding out the fun are swings, spinners and two climbing walls, plus a serpent-like tube that lets kids on opposite sides of the playground chat telephone-style with each other.
