Why isn’t my local playground showing up?

Chances are we don’t have the playground in our database. You can easily add the missing playground through the app. Alternatively you may send us the information through the contact page.

A playground in the app no longer exists or the playground details are incorrect. What do I do?

Please update the playground directly through the app. You can either edit the details or remove it directly. Alternatively you may send us the information through the contact page.

  • iPhone: Touch a playground pin on the map screen, to go to the details page and then in the top right there choose the Edit button. You’ll be required to sign up and confirm your email address but once this is done you can add, remove and edit playgrounds as your local knowledge allows.
  • Android: Go to the map screen and find the playground you’d like to edit or remove, touch the map pin to go to the playgorund detail page. On that page there is three dots in the top right, touch that and you’ll be presented with a menu of options, select “Update Playground” and you can update the details or remove the playground.

Thank you so much for your edits! Every improvement to the playground database is available for all other users.
