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.
