Joyce Playground (a/k/a Priscilla Playground)
Joyce Playground, also known as Priscilla Playground to locals (or so I'm told), is a bright, colorful playground that includes some fun twists on the typical equipment - especially for older kids - that I haven't seen at any other playground so far. The main playground section is fully enclosed, and outside there is a water play area with inground sprinklers, basketball courts, and some additional swings. It was decently shaded at 10 a.m., though I'm guessing it's the opposite in the afternoon.
I walked, so I can’t say for sure, but the parking situation seemed pretty grim – there are some patches of 2-hour parking on
Street about half a block from the playground, but
not much. If I read the signs on Union
Street correctly, that street is resident-only
parking on weekdays only, so your best bet might be to drive over on a Sunday.
If anyone has any alternative suggestions, please let me know in the comments!
