Statewide Partnership for Education & Funding Initiative

Supporting Community Health & Wellness through Evidence-based Park Destinations

CPRS, PlayCore and GameTime have partnered in a collaborative effort to improve the quality of life in communities through our 4th Statewide Healthy Play Initiative. The goal of this partnership is to provide quality education, evidence-based resources, and funding opportunities to create healthy play and recreation spaces across the state of California.

About the Professional Development Event:

Parks are essential to creating healthier, happier societies across generations. These interactive education symposiums are designed to fuel your community‚Äôs passion for play and recreation, empower stakeholders to become champions for high quality outdoor play and recreation environments, and meet the diverse needs of children, families and communities. Attendees will be inspired by these leadership case examples, outcomes, and the strategies deployed to creatively engage community members and develop partnerships. The content, resources and hands-on learning activities will offer new strategies and insight on ways to effectively champion key initiatives, increase physical activity, promote inclusion, support nature engagement and address play value to effectively impact child development. Parks and recreation is critical to building viable communities. Join us to share your vision, build your case and turn research into practice.
