Notes: Children's Playground's renovation was completed in June 2007, and renamed the Koret Children's Quarter. (Here's an article lamenting the loss of the older play structures.) The new playground has areas for the smallest and the largest kids. Be aware that the smaller play structure (right) has an exit from the top level out the back to a path where people tend to tie up their dogs. If you have older children, be sure to bring cardboard boxes for the cement slides.
