Join us at the cHURCH as members of the play:ground team discuss their work and perspective on adventure playgrounds. This is a free event. Bagels and coffee will be served.

play:groundNYC is an adventure playground on Governor’s Island in New York City that provides a space for young people to explore the world, a safe space for building, imagining and risk taking. play:groundNYC is a space for and by young people to test themselves and develop a sense of ownership and belonging which fosters long term responsibility to their community and world. A player-determined space for exploration and experimentation, play:groundNYC is rooted in the concepts that immediate and local access to the natural world and self-directed play can have an everlasting positive effect on young people.
