Playground Project

Okay!  I’ve been saying that I’m trying to figure out a way to get information about all sorts of playgrounds, and I ‘m hoping that all of you can help me.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Think of a playground that you think is worth knowing about.
  2. Click on the link to a survey and answer questions (it should take about 5 minutes) about this playground.  I don’t have a way to prevent duplicates, so I’ll try to update you about which playgrounds someone’s already told me about.  But even if someone’s told me about a playground, you can still name it, skip some questions, and add your extra comments.  I’ve also added a link to the survey over on the left side, in case you want to complete a survey some other time.
  3. I’ll gather up your information and create a page (like the Big Ol’ List of Links and What about TODAY?) for your enjoyment.

Indian Meadows in Glenville: fun & scary

I actually put a little preview version of the survey on my Facebook Fan Page, and a few people were kind enough to fill out a survey as I was testing it out.  So I’ve collected information about the following playgrounds already. Thank you, survey-filler-outers!

  • Indian Meadows
  • Central Park
  • Rosemont Park
  • The Crossings of Colonie
  • Ridgefield Park
  • Town of Bethlehem Elm Ave Park

Also, if you know me personally, you might know that I’d already created a list of area playgrounds for my moms’ group, so if you can think of a few recommended playgrounds, fill out a survey about one that I’m less likely to know about on my own, please.

Sound good?  Willing to help?  Please?  Okay, then click away!

    Thanks so much for putting the Mac-n-Cheese bowl on your list o’ Saturday things to do! We sold out of our tickets in the first 45 minutes – it was a huge success!! The results will be in the Times Union either Sunday or Monday. Thanks again – you have a fantastic site!
