This playground, located between Lincoln Place and Berkley Place and between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, lies in one of the finest historic neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Taking its name from its topography, Park Slope sits on a gentle hill that stretches from the Gowanus Canal to Prospect Park, which was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in 1865. Park Slope is bounded by Prospect Park to the east, Fourth Avenue to the west, Flatbush Avenue to the north, and Green-Wood Cemetery to the south. It is divided into the smaller neighborhoods of North Slope, adjacent to Prospect Heights, near Grand Army Plaza, and South Slope, which runs from Ninth Street down to Green-Wood Cemetery.
