Map Shows Which New York City Playgrounds Have the Most Reported Injuries

Our friends and data sleuths at DNAinfo recently compiled City data on reported playground injuries and mapped them out to see which playgrounds fare the worst.

At the top of the list was the innovative Evelyn’s Playground in Union Square Park, where children flock to a giant silver dome that begs to be climbed and a spinning wheel that lets kids whirl through the air.

The playground, which opened in December 2009 and got a new play surface in 2014, routinely appears on lists of the city’s best playgrounds. There were 11 children — and at least one mom — hurt there.

Check out the full report for more takeaways and tips on keeping your child safer at public playgrounds.
