Join the Movement: Host a Play Day in Your Neighborhood

Last year, Healthi Kids had a crazy idea - to partner with neighborhoods across the city to create multiple pop up play spaces on the same day. The event, PlayROCs your Neighborhood, raised awareness for safe and accessible play spaces for every child, in every neighborhood.

What started as a spark, created a movement among our neighborhood partners, having a place for children and adults to play in their neighborhood was, and continues to be a quality of life issue. Every child, no matter where they live, has the RIGHT to PLAY.

In 2016, fourteen neighborhood associations, block clubs, and community organizations reclaimed their public spaces and demonstrated what a playful neighborhood looked like to them in our "PlayROCs your Neighborhood" city-wide play day!

This year, our coordinated play day "PlayROCs Your Neighborhood" is coming back, and we're hoping to be even bigger and better than before!

If you're interested in hosting a FREE play day in your neighborhood on July 15th, contact Jenn Beideman at or 585.224.3151. For a printable version of the flyer below (in both English and Spanish)
