For over 100 years, the Police Athletic League (PAL) has provided safe places to play and learn for thousands of Bronx children through PAL’s Summer Playstreets Program. PAL is launching its 2015 Summer Playstreets in the Bronx on Monday, July 6th. New York City youngsters play traditional sidewalk games, develop their creativity through the arts, and learn from a wide range of educational, recreational and cultural arts specialists.
PAL’s Summer Playstreets Program closes off streets and utilizes other public areas, such as playgrounds and parks, throughout New York City to provide children with safe, supervised places to enjoy outdoor summer activities. Playstreets are open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through August 21st, and are free to all New York City children. Playstreets offer sports, arts and crafts, games, music and dance. Featured activities include Double Dutch jump rope, Hopscotch, Nok Hockey and basketball. PAL is operating over 40 Playstreets throughout the five boroughs this summer, in addition to offering Cops & Kids teams and close to 20 summer day camps.
