Play at the Park!

Providence Children’s Museum is facilitating a series of “pop-up play” activities at Providence public parks in July and August, taking big blue Imagination Playground blocks plus other loose parts and open-ended fun to neighborhoods across the city. This is a pilot program, in partnership with the Providence Department of Parks and Recreation, to bring unstructured Museum-quality play experiences to public spaces while raising awareness of the importance of play for children’s growth and development.
