Whether you’re in the city or the suburbs, every family has their favorite go-to playground for those sunny summer afternoons. While there are tons of beautiful parks around the country that kids adore, not all can boast jaw-dropping views and killer locations. Click through the slideshow and check out these picturesque playgrounds with views that even the little ones will appreciate…when they’re not busy playing of course!

Pier 6 Playground, Brooklyn

Nestled almost underneath the Brooklyn Bridge, this awesomely modern playground, featuring a waterpark area, toddler sandbox, and "Swing Valley," offers a view that really shines. The Manhattan skyline seemingly shoots up from behind the park on one side, while the view of the East River on the other side provides a more natural background.

Park Perk: Check out Bark Hot Dogs' concession and enjoy the sights while noshing on yummy local (and kid-friendly!) fare.
