What We Do

What We Do

We try to go to and use these parks in order to give you the most information we can about them that will help your child excel in life.  We also review the smaller things like parking, if there are bathrooms, and if the park allows dogs and if so, in what capacity.  We even look to see if there’s shade for people to sit in.

Why We Do It

Why We Do It

A park should be designed to help kids develop coordination, teamwork and their ability to make decisions based on, not only successes, but failures.  A park can contribute to getting them ready for life’s challenges by developing these skills.   We feel that a child’s development in these areas will help them to excel in life.
