The last weekend of public access to Governor’s Island is this weekend. Jump on the ferry and check out Play:groundNYC!
Summer is officially over and that means Governor’s Island is closing for the season as well. Go visit Governor’s Island for their last weekend for the season. Make sure to stop by Play:groundNYC, the first wild playscape in the NYC area. The 5,000 square foot space follows other Adventure Playground formats—designed as a junkyard of sorts and filled with “trash”—which means kids are free to build, wreck, move, dig, create and take chances at their own pace and level. There’s an area just for the tiniest adventurers (a mud kitchen that requires parental supervision) and there’s a junk play area for kids ages six and up (supervised by play-workers) and the only “rule” is to wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes.
