Hi.

Playgrounds, spraygrounds, and pools are a fun way to get Moms and kids out of the house and in the sunshine. Long Island has a multitude of fantastic playgrounds for residents and guests to enjoy.

John Burns Park Playground

John Burns Park Playground

This playground has two big and little kid playgrounds, separated by a large distance. The enclosed play area is to the left of the entrance, next to restrooms and a water vending machine. There is very little shade so bring the sunscreen.

There are lots of swings, several slides and hanging features. The ground is rubber with some grass and concrete. Bring sidewalk chalk for added fun. My kids liked to play store owner with the counter and bench under one of the sections. 

GOOD FOR: Rewarding the kids after shopping.

BEST FEATURE: Very high monkey bars.

YOU SHOULD KNOW: The playground is fenced in but there is not a gate to close. Also the playground is right on Merrick Road. It doesn't feel very relaxing.

WORTH A LONG DRIVE: Yes, with lunch at Zim Zari.

ADDRESS: 4990 Merrick Rd, Massapequa Park, NY 11762
