Lillian D. Wald Playground is themed after the founder of visiting nursing for whom the park is name. The roofs of the children's play area resembles the Lower East Side tenement rooftops that nurses used to jump across to provide health services more rapidly. There is also a custom stethoscope balance beam and nurse’s cross climber. Two basketball courts, a volleyball court, and two handball courts complete the playground.
