Charles Bank Playground & Spray DeckCharlesbank Playground is a lot of fun - you may catch a glimpse of it as you drive by on Storrow Drive and wonder - 'how does one get there?'

Situated along the banks of the Charles River, it's a family's dream; a spot where the kids can swing, run, climb, and pretend, while parents enjoy the sun glimmering on the Charles.

The large play area is fenced in and covered with bark mulch. There are several climbing structures with varying degrees of difficulty. One entire structure is geared toward toddlers, with nothing too long or tall. The playground also features a long tube/tunnel.

The many slides include one that twists, a longer 'big kid' slide, and two shorter slides that are next to each other - great for races! The park has 4 sling swings and 6 infant swings. For those who have 'wheels', there is a paved path that circles the entire area.

If you bring a picnic lunch, the playground offers three good-sized wooden tables with benches. One table is handicapped accessible.

In the summer, there is a spray deck that is perfect for cooling off.

Walk the Storrow sidewalk from the Esplanade toward Museum of Science
There is no on-site parking. You can also take the Red line to MGH and walk toward the Museum of Science - but the Science Park T is closer to this playground.
