If you have just moved to another town and do not know any good play spaces where you could take your kids to play, PlaySpaceFinder can help. It is a playground locator website launched by a non-profit organization KaBOOM!. The site collects and maps over 100,000 play spaces (playgrounds, skate parks, field complexes etc.) scattered all over US.
Users can search for play spaces by location (address, city or zip code) or simply by zooming in onto the location on the map. All listed play spaces are rated and shown with a marker on the map. Clicking on to a particular marker displays additional info including pictures, amenities/equipment, comments and user ratings (see image below).
As a site user you may contribute to the service by submitting new play spaces that aren’t yet on the map and rate play spaces you have been to.
