If you've been to the Met
and want to continue the Temple of Dendur
"feel," the Ancient Playground
was designed for just that purpose. In reality, it's just an exceptionally good playground for kids of all ages, with all the obvious play stuff: lots of slides; a sand pit; tire swings; chain bridges; a water sprinkler
that runs on hot days, and enough sand to start a small beach when you go home and shake out your shoes.
There's a nice, quiet area for smaller kids
, with a toddler sandbox that holds a lovely concrete turtle
to climb on or sit under. There's also a fine set of gated baby swings.
