A popular destination for local kids, the newly-renovated Midtown Terrace Playground is located near Clarendon Elementary School. The playground has a clean, well-maintained play area and a nice, large grassy area good for picnics or ball play. Kids and their caregivers often set up tents on the grass for a shady respite, or play with parachutes in the open field.
The park has a small recreation center with bathrooms.
Midtown Terrace playground is host to early childhood camps for the 5 and under set.
