Project P.L.A.Y. (Providing Leisure Activities for Youth) earned an Award of Excellence from the Minnesota Recreation and Park Association. The annual award is given to increase public awareness and appreciation of excellent parks, trails, and recreation services.

Through Project P.L.A.Y., Bloomington youth had opportunities to participate in programs, including a Medallion Hunt, Pop-up Soccer, Take Home Summer Camp Kits, Winter BINGO and more. The quantity and diversity of programs, activities and events developed within Project P.L.A.Y were noteworthy. Nearly 30 unique programs were offered, providing 200 individual opportunities for recreation. 

Project P.L.A.Y. was created and put into place in response to COVID-19. Due to budget limitations and CDC guidelines, new programs were needed to provide safe recreational opportunities that were fun, engaging, active, imaginative and inclusive for youth of all ages and abilities.
