    in/at the playground

    They enjoy playing on the swings in/at the playground.

    Is the above sentence correct? Which preposition should I use?

    Thanks.

    Thanks, Tdol.

    I haven't heard from you for a long time. I'm glad to hear from you again.

    All the best.

    If your audience speaks AE, "at" would be slightly more natural here.
