School is almost out for summer break and you’re wondering how you’re going to keep the kids busy.  We’ve put together a list of our favorite playgrounds in the Buffalo area and we’ve included maps for each of them to help you find your way there.  If your favorite playground is not on our list you can leave a comment below and share the information with the rest of Western New York.

#5 Any local elementary School

Just about every local elementary school has a playground your kids will love.  Many schools have or are in the process of replacing their older playgrounds so seek out the schools that have newer/safer playgrounds for your kids to play on.  Share the names of those schools in our comments area below.

#2 George’s Restaurant

George’s Restaurant is located at 5808 Herman Hill Road in North Bostonand has one of the nicest playgrounds around but what really makes this place special is that it’s also located on the grounds of one of the area’s most popular hot dog/burger restaurants. We love going their because we know that while we’re relaxing under the awning with a hot dog or milkshake the kids are safe and having a great time on the playground. The playground has separate area for toddlers to help keep them safe.
