Welcome to Denver Playgrounds & Parks. In this Kickstarter-supported project, I set out to compile a review of the over 740 public metro Denver playgrounds between 2014 and 2017. 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.


UPDATE April 10, 2017

I am busy working on over a dozen playgrounds that were renovated in 2016 and 2017 throughout the metro area, including some brand-new installations and replacements. Stay tuned for an update to both iPhone apps!

UPDATE May 1, 2016

The 3rd edition of the guide book has launched and the book is back in print! It contains over 160 additional playgrounds and a new focus on the top 50 playgrounds. Time to celebrate the “Expanded 2016 edition”.

UPDATE April 5, 2016

With the book out of print for several months now, I’m hard at work on a third, expanded edition of the printed guide book. I expect a launch date at the end of April.

UPDATE December 17, 2015

Thanks for everyone's enthusiastic interest in the project! I have nearly sold out of the book and I’m down to my last 10 copies. If you’re looking for a print copy, check with the many local Denver stores

UPDATE October 8, 2015

Version 3.0 of the iPhone app includes over 120 new parks. The completed project features over 700 public playgrounds. You get these and many other updates in the app immediately.

UPDATE August 25, 2015

I’m working on adding about 100 playgrounds. These parks will bring the total to over 700 and complete the entire greater metro area, from E-470 up north to C-470 in the south. Expect an app update in a few months.

UPDATE June 15, 2015

The expanded version of the guide book has been printed! It features 55 additional playgrounds, higher print resolution, and 10 additional pages. Available on Amazon and at local Denver stores.

UPDATE Mar 1, 2015

I’m working on adding new playgrounds to the iPhone app, mostly in the Golden and west Littleton area. 

UPDATE Dec 19, 2014

Done! The printed guide book has officially launched and is finally available on Amazon and in local Denver toy and book stores.

UPDATE Dec 9, 2014

The new iPhone app “Best Playgrounds in Denver” is available on the App Store. It goes far beyond the scope of the book.

UPDATE Nov 5, 2014

I’m happy to announce the availability of my first app “Denver Playgrounds & Parks”. It features an overview of more than 500 public playgrounds, with map locations, photos, and ratings.
