Go Ask Mom Parks Database
Every Friday, Go Ask Mom features a great place to take kids across the Triangle. Many Fridays, it's a local park or playground. Here's a sortable database of all the reviews we've done so far.
The list allows you to sort by city and some more specific categories - designed for tots, shady playgrounds and pool. Most playgrounds have areas for young children, but in the "designed for tots" category, you'll find playgrounds that are specifically built for preschoolers and younger. In the "shady playgrounds" category, you'll find playgrounds that are mostly or entirely in the shade.
Is every park in the Triangle here? Not yet, but we're working on it. So check back here regularly.
