Progressive Adventure Playland
265 Marcus Garvey Boulevard [map]
Founded in 1987
Progressive Adventure Playland is an 11,000 square foot playground built on Administration for Children's Services property in Bedford-Stuyvesant. The site was originally built by GrowNYC's Lots for Tots program in 1987 and named after the adjacent daycare, Emmanuel Progressive Day Care Center #1.
GrowNYC worked with Kaboom! to completely rebuilt the playground in 2009 after Little Sun People Too, a new daycare operator, moved in. Several mature shade trees, shrubs, and flowers create a shady play area for children from the day care center, and there is also a small children's garden area.
