Fit Kits & PlayWays


Fit Kits are free kits with various fitness equipment and materials that can be used to promote and engage community members in physical activity. Individuals, groups, or families will be able to borrow Fit Kits through participating community organizations. Through Fit Kits, we hope to engage kids and their families in fun and free fitness activities.
 Playway event

Playways are small-scale, neighborhood-organized street closures for active recreation – a way for neighbors to transform their streets into a playground for residents of all ages to play.

Sounds like a block party? It’s similar, but with lots of opportunities for active play. Playways are multi-generational spaces for play, imagination, and social interaction.
