PlayStreets is a collaborative program sponsored by the Chicago Department of Public Health, which supports healthier and stronger communities. These events focus on creating safe and accessible residential play areas for kids to be active, to learn, and for neighbors to come together.
PlayStreets events are back!
PlayStreets has been a great success this summer! We held 5 in-person events so far, in locations all over Garfield Park, with our partners Herban Produce, The Hatchery, Ridgeway Block Club, and the Tilton Park Advisory Council.
We are grateful for the support of our local delegate agency Gads Hill Center, which helps administer PlayStreets events in Garfield Park and beyond.
