does en also remove the need for the accusative case?

Also, the park is not the direct object.

What do the pigs play? The park?

play can be transitive and intransitive. When used as in intransitive verb, it just means to play, as in have fun, be silly.

You don't use the accusative after prepositions.

You can, but it indicates movement.

Li saltas sur la tablo = He jumps on the table = He is standing on the table and jumping up and down on it.

Li saltas sur la tablon = He jumps onto the table = He is standing somewhere else, jumps, and lands on the table.

For prepositions that can mean position or motion (such as "en"), the accusative is used to mean motion. So "en la parkon" could be used to mean "into the park".

Anyone else hear nouns ending in -o and want to put el instead of la?
