Hippo Playground Project

Hippo Playground Project

Join us for this year’s Spring Fair on Sunday, May 7!

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

For over 35 years, The Hippo Playground Project has improved and maintained equipment and provided free activities for one of the neighborhood’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.

In addition to lovingly maintaining Hippo Playground, the User Group is working to support improvement projects in other Riverside Park playgrounds.

The Hippo Playground Project offers free children’s programs and events: Summer Art in the Park; Children’s July Concert Series; fall pumpkin carving, and our annual Halloween Parade.
