Playspace finder

You can be the first to rate Long Beach's play areas.

The KaBOOM! Playspace Finder, currently in beta, allows you to enter, search, and rate playspaces in your community. It is a free, searchable directory that helps parents, community members and kids locate playgrounds, skate parks, sports fields, and even ice rinks across America. It can also be used to alert local communities about recreational areas that need a little help.

Anyone can add a playspace to the KaBOOM! Playspace Finder! With the Playspace Finder it's easy for you to upload photos, include details about the playspace and submit your thoughts on the space’s overall “play value.”

The KaBOOM! Playspace Finder is a great and easy way to get your kids outside to play, help visitors and new residents in your community locate nearby playgrounds, and create positive changes in the state of play in your neighborhood.

Community service credit and Girl Scout patches are available for contributing to the KaBOOM! Playspace Finder.

KaBOOM! is a national non-profit organization that envisions a great place to play within walking distance of every child in America.
