TRANSFORMING OUR CITY THROUGH PLAY
play:groundNYC is a non-profit organization advocating for young people’s rights by providing playworker-run environments that encourage risk-taking, experimentation and freedom through self-directed play. We work with communities to establish their own neighborhood playgrounds and play initiatives, and we operate The Yard, an adventure playground on Governors Island.
SUMMER CAMP 2020
Spend summer at our kids-only space on Governors Island where young people explore building, imagining and destroying with trained playworkers.
Join our Adventure Club during the school year, where playworkers pick up your child and bring them to The Yard for self-directed play.
Our 2019 campaign will raise much needed funds to run pop-ups all across New York City - on your block, in your house or park, and at our pop-up play days. Donate today and tell us where play happens in your neighborhood. #playhappenshere
