61st & Baltimore Play Area: Cute park on the fringes of Cobbs Creek

Date visited: 11/11/12

  • Tall playset with platforms, arched bridge, 4 ladders (including one habitrail-style), 3 metal slides (short, medium-wide, spiral), shop counter, ground-high benches, crawl-through circle
  • Free-standing clamber, sort of like monkey bars in a circle
  • 4 strap swings, 2 bucket swings
  • Grasshopper rocker -- works nicely, appealing-looking
Ages: 1-7

Impressions: Nice smallish park on busy avenue and end of Cobbs Creek Park.  Equipment in good shape.  Not super extensive but enough to entertain for 15-30 minutes
Overall rating: 7
