Parks and Playgrounds and Open Gyms, Oh My!

Swings in Spring

Montgomery County Parks and Playground Finder
At first look, visit the link above and you’ll get a seemingly simple list of the parks and playgrounds in the county, but with a little imagination you can go on a hunt with your child for a brand new world of possibilities and play. Go to the link, hit Ctrl-F simultaneously on your keyboard, type in your zip code, a neighboring zip or the name of your town in the window, and then keep clicking the Next that appears right next to the little word search window. Click the green link on each park’s name for a photo, description of each park’s features and directions to these new locations. I guarantee you will find some parks and playgrounds listed that you have not yet tried with your family. And now you have some new play options with your kids that are 100% outdoors, 100% free.
