Playground fun for families

We’ve found a fantastic resource for parents and one that the school holidays present an ideal opportunity to explore, especially before the weather starts to restrict us to mainly indoor activities. lets parents share reviews of the playgrounds they visit and gives you details on where to find the good ones!

It’s a resource by families, for families. You can both review the playgrounds that you visit as well as take advantage of the previous playground experiences of other parents.

There’s also an iPhone app which allows parents to find somewhere for the kids to play while they’re out and about.

Perhaps you’re headed away on a road trip for the holidays? If so, Playground Finder gives parents the opportunity to create lists of playgrounds to visit and share with others. This means that other parents have been and done the hard work for you and plotted their playground pit stops– one less thing for you to worry about! Have a look at the Melbourne to Adelaide list here, it certainly gives the kids ample opportunities to stretch their legs during the long drive.

Check out the Playground Finder website at and let us know what you think.
