KaBOOM!, a national non-profit dedicated to saving play, recognized Rowlett among 118 cities across the country as Playful City USA communities.
Playful City USA communities make a commitment to play and physical activity by developing unique local action plans to increase the quantity and quality of play in their community. The program is in its fourth year.
Rowlett is engaging its citizens to promote neighborhood park locations and playspace amenities through the creation of a new program called “Come Out & Play.” Here is a link to the city’s Parks and Recreation department website.
Other area cities among the six in Texas receiving the designation were Arlington, Euless and Grand Prairie.
