Playground 52 is a small park in Longwood, Bronx. Originally built in the 1950s as a playground for MS-52, the playground suffered decay during the 1970s. In 1980, a group of volunteers known as 52 People for Progress began to rehabilitate the park. Although the school was renamed as MS 302 during the 1990s, the playground is still referred to as Playground 52.

The park is owned by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation and is used as a venue for musical performances.
