how often do you take your child(ren) to the park?

i would take mine about once every other week but since the weather is looking great it looks like if not everyday, every other day... we also like taking him for trail walks.

  • I use to do every day when we lived across the street from one but now we live no where near one plus its been below freezing the past month with bad air quality so its been awhile.

  • We take our son usually once a week when its spring and fall time. The other time he just plays with his own play stuff in our backyard.

  • I take him outside every day it's not raining or below freezing (we live in NC, so it's not that often), but we only go to the park about once/week.

  • In the Spring and summer we go to a park that has a lake. The boys are able to fish and when they get tried of fishing they play in the park area. So we go about three or more times a week. In the winter we are home bound.

  • We used to go a couple times a week, but when the weatehr got hot, it's just not as much fun. This year I am planning to hit teh state parks for some biking and the beaches when there's 25 miles of beach to walk along.

  • Never... they play in our backyard, in the woods behind our house, or at one of the neighborhood kids back yards - so there is no need really.

  • Its way too cold to do that lately so I have been taking him to Wonderlab and an Indoor Mcdonalds play place once a week. Sometimes more depending on how this pregnant momma is feeling.

  • Never. It's winter and raining all the time. My older kids are big enough to walk themselves to the park, though. They go whenever they feel like it (mostly my son to play football with his friends). They are 10, 9 (my son) and 8. They usually take their almost 5yo sister with them. Maybe when the baby is a little older I'll walk him over (it's a couple blocks down the street). There isn't much for him to do there, they don't have swings and the playset is more for older kids.

  • When the weather permits once or twice a week, but he's still too young to play, so once he can walk and play I would love to go more often!

  • Every Mon- Fri unless it's raining.
