MPRA is teaming up with Playcore & GameTime
to promote play and health across Missouri!

MPRA, PlayCore, and GameTime are aligning resources and strategically partnering to support and promote MPRA’s mission to advocate the quality of life through effective use of parks and recreation opportunities, education, and resources. The goals of the initiative are:

•Execute statewide professional development to encourage best practice design considerations for healthy play.
• Deploy research and data collection to demonstrate MRPA as a critical contributor to improving the quality of life of families in Missouri.
• Provide matching funding to assist high quality projects in each of the four regions to create outdoor recreation spaces that align with research-based best practices.
• Publish white papers and other advocacy and communications tools to further champion play and recreation initiatives.

How it Works:

Join a Region Professional Development Event and bring research-based best practices to your community.
