Helen Diller Playground at Dolores Park

San Francisco, California

On the south slope of the always-sunny Mission Dolores Park, swing sets and 38-foot-long super-slides have displaced sunbathers in Speedos. The new $3.5 million Helen Diller Playground is a G-rated Vegas for the toddlers and a serious workout for the adults who chase after them––across bridges and down spiderwebs, from the bouldering rocks and sound gardens to the wooden boats. Early reviews from those who really matter are glowing. “Everything here is fun,” cheers a giddy 7-year-old girl, rainbowing her face with a snow cone from the nearby cart. “Everything!”
