Playgrounds! LogoThe Playgrounds! app from Parents and KaBOOM! and sponsored by Keen is the newest must-have app for parents. The iPhone app uses GPS or a zip code to instantly find the best local playgrounds closest to you.

But Playgrounds! is more than just a playground locator. The free app allows users to rate and review playgrounds, and post pictures of the space so other parents can check it out beforehand. Parents can even use Playgrounds! to coordinate playground playdates with other families and check-in on Facebook.

The app is already being used by parents across the country, including one very famous mom: Michelle Obama. After helping build KaBOOM!’s 2,000th playground last month in Washington, D.C., the First Lady used the app to post a picture of the new play space.

Dana Points, editor in chief of Parents, says “It’s so important for families to have access to safe places for children to play and the Playgrounds! app makes finding those spaces and setting up play dates so easy.”

The app is free, easy to use, and ready to download today. What are you waiting for? Go play!

Michelle ObamaThe Playgrounds! iPhone app from Parents and KaBOOM! and sponsored by Keen is getting a lot of attention after the First Lady recently used it. Mrs. Obama was at a charter school in Washington, D.C to celebrate the building of KaBOOM!’s 2,000th playground, a non-profit that helps bring play spaces to low-income communities, when she snapped a photo of the new playground and uploaded it to the app.

The Playgrounds! app allows users to find nearby playgrounds, rate them, make playdates and more. According to MinOnline, “The app itself is easy to use and seems to be a good service-oriented brand extension for Parents.”
