Albert J. Parham Playground
Located in Fort Greene, this playground is best-known for its shallow (only 3-feet deep) pool, but it also has a great sprinkler area where anyone can cool off during a heat wave. The park's namesake was a lifelong Brooklyn resident who left a generous donation to the Parks Department, which has certainly gone to good use. The park has elaborate climbing equipment and picnic tables and is just the kind of place that a family could while away an entire afternoon.
