Description

Buffalo’s Pop-up Adventure-Playground was started by an architect, a landscape architect, an environmental activist, and an educator; all parents who are concerned about the state of children’s play in our country. Our group’s goal was to host an open-ended, free play event, which encouraged children’s curiosity about the natural and man-made world through self-directed creative play/construction projects in a format that would be approachable for parents. Our presentation will showcase the five Pop Up Parks and what the kids created, as well as in-depth information on how communities can create their own.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the current state of play in the US.
  • Understand how to organize a one day community based adventure playground.
  • Identify the creative elements designed and built by youth, as well as the developmental and social benefits received.
  • Learn how to develop a specific "Event Plan," while understanding the pitfalls.
  • Learn how to develop a "Follow Up" plan that documents the event's success, while balancing research and encouraging play.
