  • Well considering it's cold 9 out of 12 months, not often. We do have a swing set and teeter and other things in our back yard for them.

  • During warm weather - I bring my 18 month old about 3-4 times a week for maybe 20 minutes at a time, because we live about a 2 minute walk from our town's playground.

    In cold or wet weather, I bring her to an indoor play house twice a week, it's a really big play structure for 1-10 year olds.

  • Man I wish we had nicer weather to be able to go to the park all year long. But I live in MI and we only have nice weather for about 6-9 months. There is a small park near our house that I go to sometimes, but my son is only 11 months so the only thing he can do is swing in the toddler swings. He really likes it though, but can be kind of boring. Once he gets older, it'll be cool to walk down and let him play on the jungle gym, slides, swings, etc. Our city park has a really nice play area, but we have to drive to it.

  • Until my daughter started kindergarten, we had a wonderful Russian babysitter three days a week who took her to the park every day, from the time she was six weeks old, unless it was raining or snowing too much; or the temperature was under 20. We live in Chicago, walking distance to four really wonderful parks.
