  • not that often now that our backyard is all done. We have a swingset, sandbox, mud pit area, pool, waterfall, grassy area and other stuff...... it is like our very own park

  • Unfortunately hardly ever. I work full time. In the evenings we play in the backyard. Weekends we run to hockey games/baseball games. I don't think I've been to a park since the fall.

  • We only to the park to go swimming. We are from Maine and this Virginia humid heat kills us. We chill inside and only go out in the summer to get wet. In the spring/fall we go to the park several times a week.

  • My hubby (who watches my son while I'm at work) takes him nearly every day I'm working. I take him maybe once or twice. He probably goes to the park 5 or so times a week. I wouldn't be able to handle the heat that much on my own, though.

  • When my girls were little it was everyday. but now they are older and I have a young son and we have just one park in our town, there is never any kids there and he won't go if it is just me and him. He says the park is no fun if there isn't any kids to play with. He us right, so we don't go that much

  • I can't even remember the last time we did that since we have a house with a backyard now. When we lived in an apartment we went every week or so.

  • My older 3 kids (7 1/2, 8 1/2 and 10) go to the park almost every day.  It's around the corner and they walk themselves.  My 4yo hardly ever goes.  The playground there really isn't that great for kids her size and it's falling apart.  I'm 37 weeks pregnant and can't lift her into the swings and I get bored sitting there.
