Highlights: This playground is smack in the middle of downtown Newburyport with its concentration of shops and restaurants. It is our essential bargaining chip when we want to go to a restaurant or browse the antique stores: “If you’re good for five minutes we can go to the playground!”
Bummers: It’s not fenced, and it can get pretty crowded on a nice day.
What’s Nearby: Newburyport promenade, Waterfront Park, and tons of shopping and eating choices. There’s also an Orange Leaf and a cupcake shop a few feet away.
Seating: Two benches
Parking: The closest is the municipal paid parking lot adjacent to the playground.
Inn Street between Pleasant St. and Merrimac St.
