This neighbourhood spot, also known as Horatio Playground, has the basics for a pit-stop or some after-school fun for the young elementary school crowd in the West Village. The Lower Manhattan playground’s main feature is one multi-dimensional play structure that is set apart from others nearby with its unique rope-net climbers that stay close to the ground. One rope climb is a pyramid, the other is a wide horizontal stretch that requires all fours to make it across successfully. It is difficult for parents to get inside to help with these rope climbs, so kids need to take the risk on their own. But overall, this play structure with connecting ramps and platforms stay fairly low throughout, so parents can stay close at hand. There are slides at two heights, each with a fire pole to match. The one set of monkey bars may require a boost to grab on to for the younger adventurers.
