Boring as it is to have to look up so many words, I think it's essential rather than guessing the meanings. Sometimes you'll be correct, others times you could be badly wrong. Rescate does not mean playground, AFAIK, but the rest you have guessed fairly well. You wouldn't have found "descampao" as the word should be "descampado" (waste ground) they have written it as they speak it ie. dropping the "D", as in supermercao"
As for frenazo, anything ending in azo in Spanish, has increased value, or a blow with something, as in bastazo, codazo etc. So as you say, frenar is to brake, and even without the "tan brutal", a frenazo would mean heavy braking.
