Mom Maps has a free app that will help you find places to take the kids to play.
You can also find parks and playgrounds just by visiting their website, but if the app is installed on your smart phone you should be able to find parks close to your current locale.
The site and app has a slight draw back in St. Louis in that it still needs users to join Mom Maps and recommend playgrounds. Right now it will find all the parks for you, but many playgrounds are not highlighted yet.
As word of the app spreads around the playgrounds will get filled in. Maybe during tomorrow’s snow day I’ll enter a few of my favorites. How about you? Care to share your favorite playground? Head over to Mom Maps, join for free, then enter your favs!
