Little Sports Court is a small fenced in playground is located next to what looks like a community center.  Address is 50 Monmouth Court Livingston, NJ 07039, link to map here.  There is shade in the early part of the day and a picnic bench.  This is a rare park where the lower age range is 1.  There is also a lot of sand in this park.  It is usually not crowded except when there is a little league game.  The playground is not crowded but the parking lot gets full.
