Columbus Park Playground is located near the corner of Mansfield Rd. and 11th St. in Piscataway, Middlesex County. It is a shady, dino-themed playground in a park with just about every kind of sports facility you can think of.
The playground has one main play structure with a cool set of dinosaur stairs, an interesting nature fact board, mushrooms, wavy slide, taller slides, etc. There is a decent picnic shelter nearby, and the park is full
of mature shade trees.
The bathrooms were a short walk away, unlocked, aging but fairly clean.
Then the park itself has: roller hockey, tennis, tennis backboard, beach volleyball (though the net is looking pretty ratty), baseball, basketball and a decent walking/jogging trail.
