Since we can never get enough of the Mounds, this is a delightful clip of kids at Washington Square Park sledding and frolicking in the snow. The video features Karen Carpenter’s version of the song “Sleigh Ride” and illustrates how the children gravitate towards the Mounds as places of spontaneous play. Perfect if you are in need of a bit of holiday spirit. (You can also see the old park!)

The redesign of the Mounds (located in the Southwest Quadrant of the Park) was moved out of Washington Square Park Redesign Phase II earlier this year; they are now part of Phase III – still to come (no word on when that construction will begin).
