NJ Playgrounds was started in 2008 by Sheila Sayah. Sheila started exploring NJ playgrounds as a great way to keep her three small kids entertained. She quickly discovered that it wasn't easy to find good information on places to play. As she visited local playgrounds and spoke to parents she began to compile a list. At every playground she found parents who wanted to know where to go so she decided to start posting her reviews to the internet.
