Winter 2019

Lynn Campanella of Playocracy, along with the Voice of Play (IPEMA), reminds us that playing outside is critical even in the wintertime. She gives us some tips for the best ways to do this. Duncan Taylor introduces us to Alternative Baseball© which is opening doors for people on the autism spectrum and raising awareness for everyone! It is time to plan for the USPlay Coalition Conference on the Value of Play: Play for All. The conference will be March 29 - April 1, 2020. Early bird registration is open now. We will keep you updated on the plans and speakers. In addition to articles on the benefits of play, we also touch on some nuts & bolts of the park and playground industry. Kent Callison of GameTime tells us about a new community park in Memphis. Sean O’Keefe expands our imagination with streams made from stamped concrete around a tidal river.
