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.

Excellent app. Other apps miss a bunch of playgrounds, this one has all of them that I know of! I did find one that was missing, but it's super easy to add. There are so many playgrounds that I had no idea existed, super useful for exploring with kids. Highly recommended

Incredibly useful when travelling with children. We've used this in England, Wales, France, Australia, Sweden. Some countries have better quality contributions than others. France needs more playgrounds and some that do appear on the map are just a picnic bench. The app relies on user input to improve quality and quantity of playground information listed so please do edit the posts.
