Are your school's playgrounds open to the public?

I'm looking at public parks here in the city with a lot of play structures and climbing to take my son to, but I think we will change throughout the day to the school playground because he's a little spitfire today. Too much energy. 

The private schools have that scary fencing with barbed wire on the top and their play structures look super brand new, so it's obvious no one is allowed in, but there are some public schools here in the city that also have just regular fencing around the whole area to keep people out.

Are your school playgrounds open to the public too, or do they vary? I know one school district here in the city says their playgrounds are NOT to be used by the public but some people go there anyway.

IDK about the schools around you, but ours are open to the public.  Kids going into Kindergarten are encouraged to go to the schools & play during the summer to get used to the school.

If you are in the school district you can play there. Also, the sign on it states that it is for students of the school first and the public second, so you can be asked to leave if it's during school hours.
