Many cities offer online access to park maps or let you search for facilities like swimming pools and baseball fields. The National Park Service’s web site lets you browse for details about nearby national parks. Make a family plan to visit a new park every week. You may want to load up some apps like KidzOut so you can locate a playground in a pinch, but don't forget that Yelp includes playground reviews too. Prefer to have some company? Start a Meetup group to find families to join you.
