neighborhood parks across the city with free play, art, and creative exploration in conjunction with the free federal summer meals program.
Teams of trained play facilitators are a consistent presence at neighborhood parks throughout Providence. They provide activities and materials to engage neighborhood children in physically active play, improving the overall safety of the parks while encouraging more children to take advantage of free, nutritious summer meals. By working in neighborhood parks, PlayCorps fills the gap when school is out to ensure that Providence youth are safe, active, fed, and healthy over the summer.
Play activities take place from July 2 to August 17, 2018 (Monday to Friday from 11 AM to 2 PM) in these parks:
- Father Lennon/Camden Street Park
- General Street Park
- Harriet & Sayles Park
- Bucklin Park
- Wallace Street Park
Join PlayCorps members for an exciting summer of play. Enjoy a free summer meal (18 and under) and build forts, blow bubbles, make art, make music, explore nature, make friends, and SO much more!
