The Lorber Family Playground at Jackson Square

1516 Columbus Avenue, Boston, MA, USA
1516-1518 Columbus Avenue Boston Massachusetts 02119 US

If your kiddos love climbing, look no further than the unique climbing structures at Jackson Square Park in JP.  The bright orange climbing wall is challenging and fun for little daredevils.  This European-inspired apparatus is 50-foot-long, 5-foot-wide, 10-foot-tall and called “Wall-holla.” Inside, multiple levels of curving and twisting soft-coated platforms engage the mental and physical dexterity of children of all ages and physical abilities. The exterior walls are powder-coated steel gridwork offering utmost resistance to wear-and-tear and weather—all the while keeping children safe and in-view as they play freely. They can also enter and exit through various entry holes or an attached tube slide. Foot and handgrips will be affixed to the outside of the walls to create a safe but challenging rock-climbing wall. 

Adjacent to the “Wall-holla” will be two handicap-accessible zip lines, a wheelchair-accessible merry-go-round, a set of swings, a four-square court, and three unique pieces of equipment called the “grass.” These 10-foot-tall steel poles resemble stalks of “cattails” commonly found in wetland areas—but these “cattails” come with a springy base that makes them perfect for grabbing hold of and going for a swing.

Key features: basketball court, fenced in
