1) This term is commonly used by residents of Columbia, MD. It refers to the many expensive, well-maintained, and well-designed playgrounds installed in the community's recreational parks and along its paved paths. Since they are often partly secluded or located in the woods, they also serve as sites for teenage indulgence.

1) "The cops nearly busted us for drinking last night at the tot lot."
