Description

Joe Dimaggio Playground is a neat playground right next to the North Beach Library and North Beach Aquatic Center. We started out by getting delicious pizza at Golden Boy Pizza, eating it on the grass in the sun at Washington Square, and then walking down to Joe DiMaggio Playground to burn some of that pizza off.

The park has 3 lighted tennis courts, a lighted basketball court, 2 lighted blacktop baseball diamonds, 2 lighted bocce ball courts, and a playground, plus the library and the aquatic center. I'm willing to bet the park attracts a lot of patrons on the weekends.

The playground is all sand, but divided into 2 play areas and separated by a fence with a gate. Toddlers have one play structure with a wide slide. They also have a ride-on spring animal. The toddler area also has lots of shade since the play area was built around the trees.

The big kid play area has lots of picnic tables and benches surrounding the play area. It was so easy for me to sit and read my magazine while my kids played with the other kids. Speaking of playing- it was the funniest thing- the kids decided time and time again it was moving day for a donated play kitchen. They must have dragged and pushed that kitchen around the playground at least 5 times all told.

We spent a long time playing here and we were sad to leave. The 10 minute warning somehow turned into 1/2 hour later!
