    They don’t recommend going in Spy Pond at all as toxic algae has been found in the pond.

    This list has been so helpful for me during the summer, I live in Lexington but am often in Cambridge and there were a lot of places in between so there’s always one around.

    I wanted to mention Dana Park in Cambridge, which is on Magazine st & Lawrence st. right outside Central Square. There is plenty of shade, the fountain has rubber flooring, the structure area is fenced in with a toddler structure and a larger one for older kids all with flooring mixed between wood chips and rubber, lots of donated toys, and a sand box with a tap to moisten the sand to mold it. In the rest of the park there is a grassy area to play games, a basketball court, shaded picnic benches, and a community bulletin board with lots of mom/parent/caregiver stuff posted. Unfortunately around the playground is only residential parking (except Sundays of course).

    also for those who venture out to the Amherst area in Western Mass should check out Look Park in North Hampton.
