Dana Park (Cambridge)
The main attraction at Dana Park is unquestionably its in-ground sprinklers, which automatically vary in height & direction once they're turned on. At their highest, the water shoots well above adult height - next time we come here on a hot summer day, I intend to wear more water-friendly clothes and run through it myself.
The playground itself, which forms a fully-enclosed semi-circle around the sprinkler, has two fun climbing structures – one for toddlers, one for older kids – baby and kid swings, a well-stocked sandbox, and a cool, complicated-looking see-saw. There are also lots of riding toys, a basketball court, and a large grassy area/dog park.
