Calling all kids: The 2012 Summer Play Streets program will kick off in Brooklyn on July 9, and this year’s activities include a variety of sports, arts and crafts, games, music and dance.
The Police Athletic League (PAL)’s Summer Streets program closes off streets and other public areas, such as playgrounds and parks, to provide children with safe, supervised places to enjoy outdoor summer activities. Play Streets are open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Aug. 24, and are free to all New York City children.
Featured activities include Double Dutch jump rope, Hopscotch, Nok Hockey and basketball. PAL is operating close to 50 Play Streets throughout the five boroughs this summer, in addition to offering Cops & Kids teams and day camps.
