Project P.L.A.Y.’s lasting benefits

Over the past several months, Bloomington’s youth has had opportunities to participate in fun, engaging, active, imaginative and inclusive recreation programs offered through Project P.L.A.Y. (Providing Leisure Activities for Youth). The benefits of this Parks and Recreation Department initiative are ongoing.

Besides programs, including Learn to Bike, Take Home Summer Camp Kits, and Pop-up Soccer, the Project P.L.A.Y. grant helped to fund new equipment that will be available for other programs. New mobile recreation centers, bikes and paddleboards will enhance the City’s ability to deliver programs and services to Bloomington residents well into the future.

The Project P.L.A.Y. initiative was funded by a $363,000 grant through the CARES Act.
