The Playbox in Central Park

What is the Playbox in the Park?
To help families enjoy our parks and stay active, the City has installed a Playbox in Central Park beside the outdoor fitness equipment. This box is filled with all sorts of play equipment including soccer balls, basketballs, badminton racquets, skipping ropes, chalk, tennis racquets and more! Anyone can the access the Playbox for free anytime they want, you just have to sign up to get your lock access code. Children, teens, parents, grandparents, families of all kinds can use the Playbox equipment. We want to see our children and their families be active outside.
