Playgrounds are vital to the health and resilience of kids and communities. However, due to necessary COVID-19 public health measures, playgrounds across the United States closed this spring.
As playgrounds across the country reopen, it is paramount that health and safety remain the priority, and the strategies to reopen playgrounds be grounded in equity.
We're excited to share that our partners at KABOOM! have established a Playground Reopening Task Force. The Task Force includes members from KABOOM!, NRPA, City Parks Alliance and many more organizations throughout the country. This team has created a set of actionable guidelines for safe playground reopenings.
