About Providence PlayCorps

Providence PlayCorps is an innovative collaboration between the City of Providence’s Department of Parks + Recreation and Healthy Communities Office, the Partnership for Providence Parks and Providence Children’s Museum and to activate low-income 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 active, safe and healthy over the summer.

Play activities take place from July 5 to August 19, 2016 (Monday to Friday from 11 AM to 2 PM) in these parks:
  • Cabral Park (Fox Point)
  • Bucklin Park (West End)
  • Father Lennon/Camden Street Park (Smith Hill)
  • General Street Park (Wanskuck)
  • Harriet & Sayles Park (South Side)
  • Joslin Park (Olneyville)
  • Wallace Street Park (Silver Lake)

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!
