Playground, Park, Public, Free

Located in Brooklyn, N.Y., and named after the surrounding topography, Slope Park includes play activities to keep kids active. Whimsical barriers curve around the playground giving it a unique look. This park includes an Evos® play system, multiple customized play panels, slides and climbers. Located on 6th Avenue between 18th and 19th Streets, Slope Park takes its name both from the community that surrounds it, Park Slope, and for the slight southwesterly slope of the park’s topography. The neighborhood of Park Slope derives its name from its proximity to Prospect Park and the gradual topographical incline from the Gowanus Canal to the park. First inhabited by the Canarsee Indians, the neighborhood now known as Park Slope was colonized by Dutch farmers in the 1660s. During the Revolutionary War (1775-1783), the area became the site of a brief, explosive moment, in what is known as the Battle of Brooklyn, or the Battle of Long Island. On August 27, 1776, an outnumbered American regiment faced approximately 4,000 British soldiers at Battle Pass, a point now contained within Prospect Park
