Pennsylvania Avenue Playground: Art Museum resource for small kids only

Playground: Pennsylvania Avenue Playground
Location: Pennsylvania Avenue at 27th St (and Aspen St)
Date visited: 3/30/13

Equipment: one playset for small kids, with platform-style climbing, shop counter, 2 short metal slides, 2 ladders (coil and quarter circle), and 4 swings (2 strap, 2 bucket)

Ages: 1-4
Surface: rubber-chips
Shade(0-3): 0
Water: N
Other: nice view of Art Museum, Kelly Drive
Access: Surrounded by a chest-high fence, but gate seemed unlikely to be locked
Impressions: Appealing on the aesthetics (both the view and the gazebo style equipment), but there's not much here: a small space with a medium-sized play-set without challenge for older kids.  A nice stopover if you're in the area with a toddler, but not enough here to merit a separate trip
Overall Rating: 5, and only for kids under five
