Directions via Google Maps

Don't believe your eyes at Half-Nelson Playground! This playground, cheekily named for being halfway down the block of the neighboring Nelson Avenue, is known for having optical illusion themed play equipment. The playground, renovated in 2009, also features spray showers, a basketball court, new landscaping, and stone wall terraces that were carved into the existing hillside to prevent erosion and beautify the natural grassy slope.
