INSIDE: A sneak peek at Lincoln Road Playground Prospect Park Brooklyn.
The best thing at this playground in Brooklyn Prospect Park is the Water Squirting Frogs.
If you visit the Lincoln Road playground on a hot day, what fun it would be to skip and swirl through the Lincoln Playground water play area in New York to dodge their mischievous sprays and sprinklers.
But it was too cold for the frogs to squirt us when we visited.
Our adventures to the Lincoln playground in Brooklyn happened on a day where there was an unexpected out-of-season snow dump, and the frogs were frozen solid.
But it’s a cute playground regardless.
Take a look below for details of how to find it.
