Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

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.
