Event Description

play:groundNYC operate The Yard - a 50,000 square foot adventure playground on Governors Island. We are New York City's only adventure playground, open for free on weekends through October. Our awesome cardboard play day will take place on site at The Yard on Saturday October 6 from 12 to 4pm. The Yard is a blank slate, stocked with loose parts and recycled materials ready to be transformed into a land of your own imagining. Kids can work with new friends to bring big ideas to life using a wide array of materials, craft supplies, basic hand tools and of course - CARDBOARD. Join us for an afternoon of outdoor fun! Materials will be provided and supervised by trained playworkers in different areas of the playground.
