The Playground is a top secret underground S.H.I.E.L.D. facility at a classified location. After the S.H.I.E.L.D. Civil War and upon Phil Coulson becoming director of S.H.I.E.L.D., it became the headquarters for the new S.H.I.E.L.D.
Phil Coulson was given a Toolbox to aid him in his mission of rebuilding S.H.I.E.L.D. from scratch after Fury appointed him as the new director. The first thing Coulson found in the Toolbox was the coordinates to this secret base.
Upon arriving, the team met Jemma Simmons, having been dropped off by Fury. The team was also greeted by Agent Billy Koenig, identical brother of Eric Koenig who was stationed at Fury's other secret base, Providence.
Over the next few months, Coulson spent little time in the Playground as he tried to find agents for S.H.I.E.L.D.; he would travel the world and would mostly communicate via viewscreen. He tasked Skye with translating the Words of Creation and Leo Fitz with giving the Bus cloaking technology. Eventually, he recruited Alphonso Mackenzie and the mercenaries Isabelle Hartley, Lance Hunter, and Idaho and put Grant Ward in a detention cell.
- Though in a classified location, it is likely that the Playground is located in Virginia.
