Love it!

Thank you for taking the initiative to create this user-friendly app. Love knowing where playgrounds are in my neighborhood and city without the need for extensive detective work.

As the parent of a toddler, and a second one on the way, I’ve become something of an evangelist for this app since I downloaded it a few weeks ago. I was excited enough to make a Facebook Live video about it, letting other parents know this great app exists. Now I don’t just take my son to a playground to burn off steam for his sake - it’s just as exciting for me to pin a new playground to the app map and take a photo so other parents can discover playgrounds for themselves. Doing my part in Miami, FL! We need more contributors! This is my version of Pokémon - gotta catch em all! Ha! We’ll get there in Miami!

All the data I’ve entered is gone!

Edit: When I go to favorites, the info is missing. If I go to the park on the map, the data is there. A link is missing somewhere but the data is there.

I’ve been a huge supporter of this app ever since I found it and promoted it to all my mom friends. After the last update, all the parks I’ve thoroughly updated are missing the data! The date of my update and the park name is there, but the photos and all the details are gone! Park season is approaching again soon and I was looking to decide which parks to go to. I’m so upset! All my hard work is gone. I hope it’s on your servers for the next (hopefully soon) update or I’m done. I’m sorry.

Perfect for Park Explorers

I’m in love with this app! I really enjoy exploring new parks and finding all the unique styles, and this app makes that a breeze. The crowd-sourcing feature is wonderful too so I can edit or add to any parks we visit. Our local city doesn’t seem to have many users so I’ve been having fun entering the info for all the parks we explore ourselves.
