See on Scoop.itCommunity Revitalization

KaBOOM! is the national non-profit dedicated to ensuring that all kids get a childhood filled with the balanced and active play needed to thrive.

Heather Garbo‘s insight:

Could your city be officially designated a Playful City or do you live in a Play Desert? The Playful City USA program celebrates communities that promote active play for children with programs and infrastructure that keep kids healthy. Playful Cities not only engage the youngest community members by helping them to build healthy practices into their lives, but also qualify for marketing and grant-seeking opportunities. This year there are 212 designated Playful Cities (including 6 in Colorado!). You can sign up to be notified when the 2015 application period opens.
