Located on W. Bennett Ave. between Hamilton Ave. and Jefferson St. in Kearny, Coogan Park, also known as Manor Park is a great big newly redone park with the soft rubber ground. Two climbing structures and a swing structure with nice park benches facing the play area in a beautiful open grassy area. The play area has some shade from the tops of the play equipment and from a few near-by trees, but it is mostly pretty open.
