Parks are essential to creating healthier, happier societies across generations. This interactive education symposium is designed to fuel your community's passion for play and recreation, empower stakeholders to become champions for high quality outdoor play and recreation environments, and meet the diverse needs of children, families, and communities in these modern times. CPRA, PlayCore, and GameTime have partnered to improve the quality of life in communities through a statewide healthy play and recreation initiative. Attendees will be inspired by case examples, latest research, and effective strategies to creatively engage community members and develop unique partnerships. The content, resources, and hands-on learning activities will offer new strategies and insight on ways to intentionally increase physical activity, promote inclusion, support nature engagement, and address play value to effectively impact communities. Join us to share your vision, build your case, and turn research into practice!
