Turning Research Into Practice
PlayCore’s Center for Outreach, Research, & Education (CORE) is committed to researching and advocating for the impact of play and recreation on a community’s vitality and why it’s valuable to invest in community health and wellness. In collaboration with leaders and scholars, we gather and share knowledge to positively advance diverse community needs through a variety of evidence-based services.
We are committed to sharing validated research and building informed advocacy to help empower communities to create great play, recreation, and open spaces.
We are passionate about curating, translating, and sharing evidence-based research from a growing network of scholars through resources, high-quality professional development services, and data-driven support to help local advocates build healthy communities.
