During the global COVID-19 pandemic, children and families have been eagerly waiting to get outside and back to the playground. And as many communities begin to reopen their parks and playgrounds, we want to support you in your efforts to Play Healthy®. That’s why we’ve pulled together resources from our partners, which provide guidance to ensure the reopening of play spaces is done safely and swiftly. Additionally, city leaders will find product offerings to support their efforts of keeping the community healthy.
As schools reopen for in-person learning, there is a need for creating safe outdoor learning environments that provide plenty of space between students. View our outdoor classroom design concepts.
