For the last three years, children, families and neighborhood organizers have rallied together throughout the City of Rochester to raise awareness for safe and accessible play spaces for every child, in every neighborhood. Our city wide coordinated play day PlayROCs your Neighborhood has brought together dozens of neighborhood partners: local churches, libraries, block clubs, neighborhood groups who have all worked together to repurpose, reclaim, and bring back play to their public spaces.
This year, PlayROCs your Neighborhood is BACK and we know it’s going to be bigger than ever! On Saturday, July 13 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. we once again are partnering with neighborhoods across the city to advocate for change!
Check out the map below to see our 32 sites that hosted PlayROCs Your Neighborhood 2018.
