Playground near my location
People who have children know that it is important for this young group to be able to play. Playing teaches children social manners, spatial awareness and interpersonal skills. That is why a playground in the neighbourhood fulfils an important function in the education of children.
Fortunately, there are many playgrounds in our country. Municipalities often respond to the wishes of the population in a neighbourhood or district by listening to what young children want to do in their local playground. More and more indoor playgrounds are also opening up. Children can go there with their friends when it is cold and bleak outside.
Where can you find a play area nearby?
With the advent of technological tools such as the Internet and mobile phones, finding the nearest playground has become a lot easier. Regardless of whether you have visited grandma and grandpa with the children or are returning from a visit to friends or acquaintances, you can find a play area nearby with a simple search.
In the United Kingdom there are more than 716000 public playgrounds, so there is always one near your location. There are special websites that show all these playgrounds and some of the play area’s even have their own website with opening hours and prices. The latter is often the case with private playgrounds in the neighbourhood.
Are there any other tools?
Today, route planners can do much more than when they first appeared on the market. Apart from showing you a route from A to B, you can also zoom in on the area you are in, so that in this case you can look for a playground nearby. The beauty of it is that you can also customise the route you are shown if you go walking or cycling.
For example, you can leave your car at home when you see that the nearest playground is within walking distance. This is good for your health and the environment, and you can show your children that climate change starts with such small contributions.
What else can a route planner do?
Are you planning a day out with the children but also have some other important appointments or destinations to visit? With the route planner, you can get directions for all the places you need to go so that you can drive from destination to destination without any trouble and searching. This way you save time and can spend more time with your children in a nearby playground.
A route planner can even be used when travelling by public transport, so that you know exactly how long and where you have to wait if you have to change trains. At that point, there might be a play area nearby where your children can let off some steam.
