The Equipment While the Walter Pierce Playground is vintage by nature, it’s loved by young children in the area. The enclosed playground is shaded with a wood chip surface. You can safely monitor children’s play throughout the entire playground from one of the benches or picnic tables. There is plenty of equipment keeping little ones free from boredom. Hop aboard a fire truck, choose your ride-on toy, or balance on the see saw. Choose from multiple play structures all of which feature slides of various styles supporting different skill levels. Two of the structures feature a corkscrew climber while the most advanced also has a dated ladder and cargo net. The playground also contains a pair of toddler and regular swings. The Scene Walter Pierce Playground sits in a quiet section of Adams Morgan/Woodley Park. There was someone sunbathing, another reading a book, while one family had a picnic, and a grandmother played with her young grandchildren. In addition to the playground there are basketball courts, a multipurpose field, and a dog park. Age Recommendation Ages 2 to 5. Restrooms None. Review and photos by Kathleen Molloy.
