If you aren’t familiar with njplaygrounds’ history, it started 2008ish and then took a hiatus as both creators (Sheila and Amy) had kids that outgrew the traditional playgrounds and had different interests. In 2023, it made its way back to Sheila and it was time to figure out how to re-invent a dusty website now with her partner at Sayah Media, Dina. As we figure out social media, websites in 2023, and collaborating with playground enthusiasts, and influencers, we will be introducing new content and reconfiguring so to make sure we are offering something unique and different for our audience!
For now here is what has been worked on most recently!

I am pretty sure that’s the location, except google maps doesn’t show the nice pavers put in.
