The Adventure Playground at 67th Street off of Central Park West (just north of Tavern on the Green) is the only playground on the West Side with sprinklers between 63rd and 85th Streets — and it’s closed for repairs!
The mercury hit a high of 88 today, the first really hot day of the year. Tipster Maggie snapped this photo and told us she saw lots of children in an adjacent sprinkler-less playground, sizzling their tiny toes on the concrete. Update: the playground reopened in the late afternoon! Phew. Photo below.
