PlayAtlanta

Yes. Play in a City Is Good for the Entire City


Everyone is talking about attracting "Millennials" to Atlanta to help build a vibrant, creativity-based economy, but what about keeping (aka sustaining) that population as they grow and have families? They don't stop being creative and good for the city when they have children, they become MORE interested than ever in having a great place to live. It's just that now they want some place great to live for the new loves in their lives...their children. 

What if Atlanta was a welcoming place to children everywhere. What if it was great to have children grow up IN the city instead of OTP (outside the Perimeter...you're not from here, are you?)? 

This simple video from our friends at KaBOOM! shows how easy it is to make a city playable and how it benefits ALL, not just the children and the parents. Frankly, I hear all the time about older kids, young adults and seniors who want to play, too. So, let's start thinking about how to make this happen....how to design for children as if they mattered. Because,  you know what? When the children are yours you know they matter. Let's design play for ALL!

Ethan's grandmother gave him a gift of $25. He gave $20 to ATOP so more Atlanta kids will have great places to play. He kept $5 to get something cool for himself. We think Ethan is pretty cool!
