  • Community Outreach

    The Safe Playgrounds and Sportsfield Project is an initiative to provide safe play environments through community build projects. Injury Free sites across the country have discovered that playground projects that involve a coalition of community members serve to build up distressed communities and reestablish community spirit while providing safe places for city children to play.

    Thus far, the Injury Prevention Center conducted two comminuty playground renovations in Providence. Both projects, funded by the Allstate Foundation, transformed the neighborhood playgrounds into state-of-the-art play areas that are fun, challenging and safe.
