BLACKWELL PARK PLAYGROUND

ROOSEVELT ISLAND, NY

Located on Roosevelt Island, Riverwalk Point provides both private amenity space for residents and public space for the local community. The play park, situated amongst groves of large deciduous trees and structural evergreens, opened in September 2013. It offers equipment to suit a range of ages, from 6 months to 8 years old, addressing a previous issue where caretakers had to leave the Tot Lot and walk to another playground in order for older children to play. The new playground also features woodchip-free rubber flooring safe for kids of all ages. For caretakers, there are plenty of benches on site and enough space outside the playground to leave strollers. The old Tot Lot lacked shade, but the new site is enclosed in a cocoon of natural shade provided by mature trees and the warm breeze that only Roosevelt Island brings.
