Play:groundNYC, a 50,000 square-foot junk playground on Governors Island, returns for another year of free weekend play and summer camp. Last year, nearly 3,000 children enjoyed using discarded materials with hand tools to build, destroy, and play with as they wished. Play:groundNYC was founded on a simple principle: Children need space to explore without being told “be careful” and “watch out.” The playground is staffed by “playworkers,” adults trained in the art of facilitating play by mostly staying out of the way. The playworkers ensure that hazards have been removed from the environment, allowing children to feel safe taking risks in their play.

Collaborate to build an entire city, imagined and built by young people, ages three to twelve.

All materials will be provided, including cardboard boxes, fabric, markers, string, tape, and more. We’ll be outside playing, solving, building, drawing, folding, shaping, stacking, laughing, and creating. Come join the fun.
