Griffin Park Tenafly –
It has two areas. One area for bigger kids and another area for smaller kids which is enclosed. It is also shaded. The climbing equipment in the smaller area is just the right height for littler kids, there is also a little store front and some baby swings. There also are bathrooms nearby. And a parking lot.
So here is a link to other parks in Tenafly–
