The Playground is a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. base set up in an old Strategic Scientific Reserve base. It is from here that the new Director, Phil Coulson began to rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D. itself.


The Playground has been prepared and maintained in their absence, and named "The Playground", by Billy Koenig, the apparent twin of Agent Eric Koenig.

In "Self Control", the LMD May sacrifices herself to allow the Simmons, Johnson and the remaining S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to escape from the base, by detonating explosives. The subsequent explosion caused extensive damaged to the Playground and nearly completely destroyed it.

Location Edit

Though technically classified, a screen displayed in Coulson's office in "Closure" appears to place the Playground somewhere around Massachusetts.


The Playground has a very large hangar, with a retracting roof entrance large enough for The Bus to enter and exit from. It would appear to have at least four vaults given the fact that Ward was confined in Vault D.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Playground is first seen in the Season One finale, "Beginning of the End".
