… must come down, right lil’ Charles S.?  Adventure Playground, just inside Central Park at West 67th Street, has gotten a good amount of bloglove during the photo series, and why shouldn’t it!  As architect Richard Dattner’s first adventure-style playground for Central Park, it kicked off a trend that would later include the Ancient Playground north of the Metropolitan Museum.

That equipment in the background look familiar?  We love seeing how the design of Central Park’s playscapes continues to entertain young New Yorkers year after year, decade to decade.  We’ve seen Adventure Playground in the 70s, the 80s … let’s see it today!  Send your photo of this–or any!–Central Park play area and we’ll add it to the series.
