Is a playground one of your destinations today? That’s true for many families at this point of the summer. But not any old playground will do.
Safe surface, check.
Baby swings, check.
Clean bathrooms, check, but that’s merely for starters.
Community playgrounds with clear sight lines for caregivers sitting in shaded areas, adventure structures with swinging bridges and climbing walls, a cooling “fog” system for sunny areas and splash pads for young children rate high on blog sites.
The cost? Check your tax bill. Sophisticated play spaces come with a price.
