Yes, the park is a nice place to walk, but the school that is hidden here is the real treat. Called the Madison Park Cooperative, it is where we sent our youngest, they have really caring teachers and like all coops, there are education and other classes.
I can safely say that the parents who are part of this are some of the nicest people we've known.
The coop is actually in the bathhouse that is at the park and it has a complete schedule of kids activities typically half day. Coops really work well if you have the time to get involved. I particularly loved helping them to celebrate Chinese New Years and that was a fun thing to do, plus the lectures in the evenings about taking care of kids were terrific.
