Jasmin Barone covers one of our favorite topics — playgrounds! This local mom, who is also an educator at The Studio School in Orlando, treasures all the outdoor opportunities Orlando has to offer. After living on a small island in Maine with only one playground, she was stunned to find that Central Florida had such a rich landscape to experience playgrounds 365 days a year.
