LSU AgCenter, Healthy Communities and the City of Winnfield are hosting a Play Street event on Saturday, July 16th from 10 AM – 1 PM at the Grove Street Recreation Center. Lunch will be served.
Play Streets are popup play events that provide safe places for families to get moving. Equipment such as obstacle courses, kickballs, long jump mats, parachutes, inflatable human hamster wheels, bubble machines and music are set up to promote active play, particularly in communities with limited access to parks and safe places to exercise.
Play Streets are powerful tools for community engagement and health promotion, especially in underserved rural areas of the state. The LSU AgCenter is committed to promoting health equity and engaging community members in problem solving to increase physical activity.
