madrid municipal park
madrid municipal park & playground
Great children's park and playground, suitable for all ages.
There is a large area to run around, separate play structures for smaller and older children, a freestanding climbing structure, swings including a toddler swing, and several plastic buddies - a hippo, a caterpillar, and dinosaur - to climb in and on, and that in additional to multiple slides that would get (almost) anyone interested. And of course, if you have young children, there is the gravel it all sits on - it is unquestionably far more fascinating to pile that onto the structures than to play in them... so much to learn!
The park itself also hosts a large pavilion by the water, and is home to the annual Madrid Bluegrass festival and the Madrid Dam Music Series featuring local orchestras and bands. For information on the music series, see https://www.facebook.com/Madrid-Dam-Music-Series-1528303720811181/
Old Mechanic Street, Madrid NY 13660
There is parking available close to the entrance of the park, and during spring and summer it is often possible to drive and park directly next to the playground.
