Madison Square Park
Madison Avenue & 24th Street Gramercy/Flatiron
New York, NY
This small but gorgeous green oasis is home to a fantastic playground, a busy dog park, rotating public art installations and lots of musical, culinary and other events for all ages.
Toy soldiers welcome kids to this brightly colored playground featuring water fountains, tire-swings, water-spouting alphabet blocks, turrets, slides, and a large water wheel in the northeast corner of charming Madison Square Park..
Named after Officer Moira Ann Smith, the only NYPD policewoman to be lost on September 11, 2001, the playground stands as a loving tribute to this community hero and mother.More Info
