Kids Go FREE At Madame Tussaud's NYC

The Mommy's Guide To Events!

Playgrounds!

    Parks and playgrounds are so exciting for kids, and so easy on the wallet! Here is a listing of many playgrounds in Nassau County, all of which we have been to before.  Some of these are not parks, but nothing more than a playground - sometimes that's all you need! However, many of them have much more to offer.  Some are well-known, others are hidden and you may not know they existed.  All playground areas are free unless otherwise noted.
