Youth Legacy - Duplessis Park
Duplessis Park is a GameTime National Demonstration Site (NDS) for Inclusion & PlayOn!
What does that mean?
This playground was designed to promote:
Including people with disabilities in play and recreation activities and providing them the same opportunities to participate is true definition of inclusion. We have partnered with industry leading experts to help communities design inclusive play and recreation spaces.
- PlayOn! (Youth Fitness and Physical Activity)
Childhood obesity is a serious problem in the United States putting kids at risk for poor health. PlayCore worked with Shape America, the organization that has established standards for developing physically literate students, to develop curriculum promoting youth fitness.
How Can I Help Contribute to Nationwide Research and Education?
Every time you visit an NDS Playground, take a minute to scan the QR Code on the NDS signs located at the front of the playground and answer a few quick questions. Then PlayON! and have fun!
