Playground Buddy is based out of Victoria, BC, Canada. We are a very small team of 4 - two developers and our supportive spouses. We are all parents who understand the need to get kids outside to play. We do this work on our own time outside our regular jobs. Development is motivated by our very energetic kids! Our hope is to make it easy for you be active and have fun with your kids outside. Playground Buddy is a community resource that depends on you to keep it up to date with the best possible playground information.



We will respond to you as soon as possible!
