Looking for a great play date location, or maybe a nearby playground when you’re on the road? Mom Maps can be a great tool, as it lets you tap the collective wisdom of parents everywhere to find kid-friendly playgrounds! The app uses  your phone’s location (or a different address, if you wish), find the closest museums, parks, restaurants, and indoor play areas.

A premium version is available – and it allows you to bookmark your favorite sites and watch videos of the playgrounds.

Pros

Great for traveling.

Each site has parent reviews that help you find the perfect playground.

Cons

Depending on the area you are searching, you may find few playgrounds marked. The app depends on how many  of its users post new playgrounds.

 

Available on the Appstore and GooglePlay for free. The premium version is available for $2.99.
