Ridiculously Nice Playground and Accompanying Mural

Now since I recently turned 33 I haven’t been going to playgrounds as frequently as I have last year. My knees are starting to hurt a bit. And I get really funny looks. But I stumbled upon a dope sky playground on Westminster Street just off of 9th Street, NW. If you are under 33 or have little children it is imperative that you check it out. It is not a huge playground but it is surrounded by beauty. There is this phenomenal mural and other pieces of art scattered throughout. Check out more photos after the jump.

There are about a dozen of the pieces like the one below.

Below is another example.

Below is a plaque mentioning the artist.

Below is a close up of the mural.
