It can sometimes be challenging to find a safe playground to bring the kids. One of the biggest things about these spots is that people find out about them by word of mouth. While searching for one, information might be hard to find, along with outdated photos online.

Some playgrounds don't allow the public during school hours, and when it comes to playgrounds on beaches, they may require a parking permit to gain access. Unfortunately, these unknown inconveniences can quickly affect your playground expectations.

With this challenge in mind, we have updated our Ultimate SouthCoast Playground Guide. We've listed playgrounds and parks throughout Southeastern Massachusetts, with a few in Rhode Island if you don't mind traveling.
