Welcome to Denver Playgrounds & Parks. In this Kickstarter-supported project, I set out to compile a review of over 700 public-access metro Denver playgrounds between 2014 and 2016. I visited each park & play area, took pictures and notes, and rated it on specific criteria. I hope my efforts will help other parents learn about the multitude of urban and suburban playgrounds in greater Denver. The results are available as a printed guide book and two iPhone apps.
