The Power of Urban Play

A national report developed with the expertise of urban park and recreation leaders across our nation. This rich resource provides information for park and recreation agencies, school districts, and other youth serving organizations to make lasting changes for children’s health and well-being in urban communities.

Data was collected and summarized through a series of interviews, surveys, and roundtable discussions in order to capture a broad representation of urban communities across the county. The report reviews the importance of play in urban communities, defines the trends and unique characteristics, and discusses best practice strategies for developing and maintaining wholesome play environments.
