Never Grow Up: An Adults-Only Playground Is Coming to Astoria Next Spring

Just because we're adults now doesn't mean we can't behave like children. 

Why do they get to have all the fun while we're stuck paying bills? Where's our nap time? Where are our two-month summer vacations?  

Starting next year, we could be having just as much old-school fun at an adult playground complete with Ping-Pong tables and volleyball courts in Astoria. 

According to DNAinfo, the plan to transform a vacant lot under the Triborough Bridge will break ground in the fall, after two years of delays due to the ongoing work on the bridge itself. 

The project for Triborough Bridge Playground A on Hoyt Avenue North, between 21st Street and Astoria Park, is expected to cost $825,000 to complete. 

The playground will include all-weather Ping-Pong tables, two volleyball courts, and exercise equipment. 

The construction on the project will also include new pavement, a drainage system, fences, and benches, according to DNAinfo

The adult playground is part of a collection of projects looking to revamp the spaces under the bridge, such as turning part of the space at Triborough Bridge Playground C (which currently has two basketball courts) will be changed into a $1 million dog run.

While we're hoping the people of Astoria aren't a bunch of degenerates like we are, and aren't thinking about combining the new leniency on drinking in public with those Ping-Pong tables... beer pong anyone?

The playground is set to open in the spring of 2017.
