Playground history (incomplete)

Brookwell Park playground maintenance history


This oddly-shaped has no street frontage at all. It also has almost no playground equipment (only one set of swings and a basketball court). But there are some apartment buildings nearby and a school on one side, so it's easy to imagine some kids wanting to play. However, on a sunny August day at about 1 pm, there was no one on the swings, nor on the basketball court.

The whole park has only three benches, plus two more on the basketball court. Hopefully the new playground will have more places for park users to sit. There are nice trees but none near the play area.
