New Places To Play
Cambridge opens three new playgrounds
We're pretty jealous of families living in Cambridge right now. As part of the Healthy Parks and Playgrounds initiative, three neighborhood parks just reopened with fabulous redesigns and sleek new play equipment (made mostly from wood and other natural materials). Specifically designed for kids 3 and younger, Fulmore Park (223 Sidney St.) has awesome new features including giant wooden manipulative blocks; a sand area with a wooden bridge and water sourced from an old-fashioned pump; and a hand-driven conveyor belt to move toys around. David Nunes (Old Morse) Park (129 Allston St.) has a new large swing set (but sadly no bucket swings) and climbing structures, plus a basketball court and ping-pong table. And Alberico Park (Allston St. at Pleasant St.) has a cool year-round skating rink made from plastic; the surface is ideal for little skaters since it makes for a slower glide. If only we knew which park to hit first.
