Update: The park is open and crowded (see left) on this gorgeous day. Crews are still filming goodness-knows-what. I couldn’t get the crew to tell me what the photo shoot was about. But it didn’t look like a super-secretive Sopranos movie. Maybe it was a commercial for a bank or a toy. Some dad-like guy kept waving his arms while jumping and smiling. Can you see him in the photo under the blue tent?
If you plan to take advantage of this crisp, fall-like morning and take the kids to a playground, don’t go to Edgemont Park. We were just there and a film crew has taken over the playground and closed it off to the public. My girls did not understand why some kids were playing in the playground and we couldn’t. I tried to explain that the kids on the playground were actors, but they didn’t care–they wanted in and I left with two very cranky kids.
