Our Urban Playground is a lifestyle and family blog written by me, Jennifer Latch, about raising a family in San Francisco.

I am a married mother of three girls and work as a commercial actor and multimedia artist.

In 2012, after the birth of my third baby, I started this blog to have a creative outlet and to document my relationship with my children, my family and our community of San Francisco and beyond.

The website and it’s social network channels have acted as a way for the community to connect and help others through laughter, memories, heartbreak and perseverance to succeed and make our lives what we want them to be.

I had a personal goal to make life more playful and fun. I wanted to enjoy my life without the years just passing by.

Life truly is better when it’s fun.

This blog is about my attempts to make life fun, every part of it, in this amazing city by the bay, Our Urban Playground.

Thanks for stopping by. I really look forward to getting to know you, but if you prefer to follow along silently. that’s ok too.

xoxo from San Francisco,

  1. Hi Jennifer,
    I wanted to thank you! I’ve noticed that our web site gets several hits, daily, from your awesome post. I own TANTRUM (in Cole Valley)
    You’re site is really fantastic! I’ve been seriously considering a pixie cut, of late, and your posts were most informative. (I kinda liked the “Willy Wonka” one the best, however.)
    Anyway, I totally recognize you and your oldest daughter and I hope you can stop in (again) soon.
    Cheers and thanks again!

    • Hi! Thanks so much and I am so happy that the post has generated some traffic! That’s fantastic and exactly why I love to blog about small businesses and artists in SF!

      We will stop by again soon!


  2. Hi Jen, Your blog also covers parenting and how you raise your kids so that they are independent and capable. That is an awesome goal, and it really comes through in some of your posts, and your kids are great because of that.
