ST. MARY'S PLAYGROUND

St. Mary's Park is the largest park in the south Bronx, and the renovation of this 2.5-acre playground will expand active recreation in the area while providing increased opportunities for programming with a large play area for ages 2-5 and 5-12, reconstructed basketball and tennis courts, a new adult fitness area, and new seating areas. 

ABB chose a natural color palette for the safety surfacing and play equipment to complement the surrounding park scenery. A colorful, multi-purpose play area to the west of the spray shower includes painted games and a tricycle track shaped to reference the spray shower graphic. The reconfiguration of the courts at the north end allow for their expansion and the addition of more trees.
