While Central Park is filled with playgrounds, Heckscher is unique because it is the largest (nearly two acres), boasts the most attractions, and is buried inside the park as opposed to being on the edges. It's got everything to keep kids happy—swings, slides, and a water feature—while parents will appreciate the benches and the bathrooms.
