Playground

Police Officer Moira Ann Smith Playground

The Madison Square Park playground was dedicated to NYPD Officer Moira Ann Smith on March 10, 2012. Officer Smith was one of the many officers and emergency responders who answered the call of duty and selflessly gave their lives in order to save others on September 11, 2001. As a member of the 13th Precinct, Officer Smith served Madison Square Park and the surrounding neighborhood and we pay tribute to NYPD’s only fallen female officer.

Our award-winning playground is open year-round from 7am to dusk.

Entrances are located just inside the park at Madison Avenue and 25th and 26th Streets.

Seasonal highlights include:

Sprinklers & 15-foot waterwheel.

Arts & Crafts activities led by our creative playground activities assistant.

From late May through early October, a playground activities assistant is on hand to supervise crafts and activities for children as well as serve as a safe presence in the playground. Check out our calendar or the KIDS page for a list of our projects and activities.
