The Hippo Playground Project

The Hippo Playground Project is an all-volunteer, community based affiliate of the Riverside Park Conservancy that works in conjunction with the Parks Department to maintain the playground and provide free activities for the community.

For over 30 years, The Hippo Playground Project has improved and maintained equipment and provided free activities for one of the Upper West Side’s favorite playgrounds. The popularity of the playground is a testament to the amazing care and concern the neighborhood has for one of its treasures. This year the Hippo Playground Project in addition to lovingly maintaining Hippo Playground, is working on improvement projects in neighboring playgrounds.

2016 Playground Improvement Projects & Programs

The Hippo Playground Project is excited to announce that we are funding several new projects this year. They include new equipment at Hippo Playground, an exciting water feature at Riverbank Playground at 142nd Street and fence repairs at the 112th Street Tot Lot Playground. 

The Hippo Playground Project will continue to offer FREE children’s programs and events: Summer Art in the Park; Children’s July Concert Series; Fall pumpkin carving, and our annual Halloween Parade.
