CPRS is teaming up with PlayCore and GameTime to promote play and health across California!

To further CPRS’ Health and Wellness initiative, and promote the CPRS Brand Promise, PlayCore’s Center for Professional Development will provide state-wide professional development services and up to $1 million dollars in matching action grant funding to assist one park in each of the five CPRS Regions install a pre-approved playground space that promotes best practices. These sites will serve as National Demonstration Sites (NDS) for data collection and will contribute data toward the publication of a White Paper to be launched at the 2016 CPRS Conference that highlights best practices and outcomes achieved by the state-wide initiative. Demonstration Sites promote advocacy at the community and state levels, and provide education, networking opportunities and resources that align with the CPRS Brand Promise.
