Frustrating. I used this app to find a park on a road trip. I kept coming up with nothing in the area, and then I plugged in parks to Google and boom. 7 parks within 6 miles. Maybe this ap is still growing, and that's fine but right now 7/30/22 it isn't worth using. Google maps works better even if you have to filter through the nonsense.

Really neat app to see all the playgrounds. But I wish there was a thing to add it to the ones you've already been too and the icon on the map changes colours. I downloaded it to try and get to all. But I can't remember.

Nice that that app shows park locations. App needs some work. Would be nice if there was a picture of the park it would show in the map icon. Can not select multiple images. Would be nice to select a main park image and then select as icon.
