NW 2

Washington School Playground/ Park

Between Elmwood Ave., Kenwood Pl.

The recreation department of the City still maintains a loose presence here, so the playground is still used by neighborhood children.

In spite of the posted rules and regulations, the playground is wide open, and even if the gates were locked, every kid in the neighborhood knows how to get in by going over or under the fence at well worn and frequently used kid-sized openings.

That opening will keep out trucks and cars and overweight adults, but not a kid, and not even a determined kid with a bicycle.
