I have a group of teenagers who also need a great place to let themselves just play. So we'll be looking around.

Hey how cool, log on to see my pic at the top lol, actually went there yesterday too. Anyway, this challenge was so fun, I always go to different parks, but sometimes drive past parks and say "Beans look at that park we have to go there one day"...and we finally did. O, won two books in the process too!! Sharla

Thanks for an incredible summer!

We're delighted to announce our Grand Prize Winners of our Summer Playground Challenge, who will each get a trip for two to Washington DC and will join us at our annual Play Academy to share their playground adventures. The final point tallies between our top four Challengers were so close that we decided to award four Grand Prizes instead of three. Now, a drum roll please for...

1. Alex Nguyen, who earned 163,680 points and took 700 photos

2. Dana Wheatley, who earned 96,550 points and took 456 photos

3. Annie Cheng, who earned 78,730 points and took 833 photos

4. Sara Russell, who earned 70,945 points and took 724 photos

Can we just say, WOW!

You should join next summer's playground challenge because you get to explore so many playgrounds you would otherwise miss. We used to go to the same ones all the times. Now after the challenge, we found so many fun places to go.
