A nice place to relax. It's not monitored so there might be some rowdy guests, but for the most part it's a lovely pavilion area.

Cool place to lay chess or checkers with people. Definitely have to bring your own pieces. Lots of ppl just come here for a nice vantage point for central park. Great view and great vibes. If you need to rest too this is great place

You can literally see kids age 5 and old people age 95 along with rookies to renowned gross masters. Like I said – a great place for chess-lovers and like-minded people to interact and have fun! If you don’t like chess or checkers, you can always ask the special park staff for some oth...

Built in 1952 to replace the Kinderberg. Players are welcome to borrow pieces from the Conservancy staff, or bring their own. Dominos and backgammon are also available. In 1986, the Conservancy built the rustic pergola surrounding the house to provide shade for players.
