Wow, Recreation Park has been seriously upgraded! Physically challenged kids can access just about everything on the playground. The five-year old in our family loves the carousel and the playground. We haven't been in the pool.

We stopped here in hopes of seeing the carousel, only to find it was closed. A bit disappointed, but my 6 year old loved the park none the less. I love the signs posted around the park about "young ears listening"-- more places need to have that!!

There is so much to do at the new park- opened up just last week and it's already being known as the best park for miles. There are so many things to run, jump, swing and move on, and best yet, it's all wheelchair accessible. There's a pool, a carousel, and a field nearby to play on, too. I wish... More

It is located in the beautiful West Side neighborhood of Binghamton and provides the only play space for students attending the near by elementary school. So it's space is only enhanced a thousand fold by the new all abilities... More

Have gone here many times to play softball. Kids can play at the park and ride the merry-go-round. Very relaxing.

Excellent carousel to visit! In the midst of a small forest-like setting. It is a free ride too! Fun, fun, fun!

Being an inner city park in a poor neighborhood it was overrun with brats of all kinds. This can't be helped however and it is a nice shady little getaway if you can't go too far...but if you can I would bypass Binghamton all together.

This is a very nice park offering the community a place to swim, run, play (tennis, softball, soccer), dance, sleigh ride/toboggan, the carousel, and more!
