The Story Behind PlaySource
Hi there! I’m Erin, founder of PlaySource and mom to Alex.
If you’ve ever spent a Saturday wondering what to do with your kids, and then found yourself back at the same museum, mall, or local park, then you’ve come to the right place!
When my daughter was born, I often found myself looking online for family-friendly activities in the Dallas area. I was disappointed with the lack of simple, reliable online resources, so I created my own! What started as a hand-written list that I kept in my car has turned into the PlaySource Directory of 1,000+ places to play!
I created PlaySource with the goal of improving the lives of parents, one Saturday at a time. My hope is that by using PlaySource, you can spend less time figuring out what to do with your kids and more time having fun with them!
See you around town!
Frequently Asked Questions
How often do you update the information on PlaySource?We are constantly updating the Directory with new places to play. Check back often.
Do you list all of the area parks and playgrounds?Not every single one, but a whole lot of them! In addition to parks and playgrounds, the Directory also lists nature preserves and splash pads/spray grounds. If you're looking for a complete list of every public park and playground in your area, check out your city’s Parks and Recreation website.
Are you on social media?YES! Follow us on Instagram at @playsourcedallas and on Facebook at PlaySource.
Do you list the hours of operation of each play place?No, because the hours of operation and closures for private events at some places are subject to change from time to time. If you’re new to a place, then we recommend that you call before you go or check their website. Avoid the frustration!
Have you been to all of the play places listed in the Directory?Not yet, but we hope to one day! Note that PlaySource is not a personal endorsement of any of the places listed.
