With 4 active kids, I love running across a random playground where they can have fun and be active (read: use up all their energy before bedtime).

And that's what makes this little app from the KaBoom folks so neat. They're trying to map out every playground in America. Do you know a few that aren't on here? You can even rate 'em.

Interesting to think about what the ratings should be based on. How high are the monkey bars? Coolest slide? How much goose poop?No local teens making the playground into a mini, offlineMySpace page?

Anyway, give it a look. I added a couple of playgrounds myself. Is your favorite playground listed?
