Burnham Park - Museum Campus Playground
This playground - officially part of Burnham Park - is located just south of the museum campus and northeast of Solider Field and consists of a single rope/net climbing element. The surface is sort rubber and although it is tucked away between trees and small hills, this site is not enclosed and quite open to the roads nearby. There are a few benches for seating.
This play structure is incorporated into the Solider Field Children's Garden. According to the Chicago Park District's website, this Children's Garden "thematically relates to the three museums nearby—the Field Museum of Natural History, the Shedd Aquarium, and the Adler Planetarium. Throughout the play space, various features evoke the themes of each museum. Large sculptural spheres representing the Earth can be climbed on or walked through. A path spirals around like a nautilus. There is a spider web-like jungle gym. Children who explore carefully will also find other subtle imagery such as seahorses and the Milky Way."
