Nova Scotia's coolest playgrounds

Just in time to help plan your summer road trips, here's a map of the coolest playgrounds in Nova Scotia as identified by the listeners of CBC Radio's Mainstreet in Halifax.

Chances are these playgrounds are unsupervised, so parental supervision is advised.

If you're looking for more places to play, Alex Smith runs a blog called Playgroundology that has some good suggestions. He's also reviewed and mapped playgrounds across metro Halifax.

There's also a free app for your smartphone that helps you find playgrounds all over the world. It's based in British Columbia, but has more than two dozen entries for metro Halifax. If you travel internationally, you'll find thousands of entries for other countries, too.
