Charles River Esplanade Playground next to the Charles River, with a two-story rope climbing structure and a slide, a hammock, and a rope bridge.
The playground has a lot to offer and much of the design is quite unique. In addition to the extremely tall slide, and the unique hammock and rope bridge there is also a large rock climbing structure and wooden poles for climbing. There is a zip line, a multi-person swing, and a twirling seat. The kids found this playground intriguing right from the start and didn't want to leave!
A path – perfect for running, biking, scooters, and strollers – runs along the park too, and shaded picnic tables are available when you or the kids are in need of a seat, some shade or just a place to enjoy a picnic lunch. A water fountain and a Little Free Library can be found there too, which is a fun little bonus!
You will need to take a footbridge to access this playground and the closest one is Arthur Fiedler Footbridge. This playground is also located right next to the Hatch Shell, which has bathrooms and plenty of events throughout the summer.
