Play is important to pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is consistently recognized with accolades from major travel and financial organizations as one of the most livable cities in the United States. One of the reasons for Pittsburgh's top rankings is its playability.

" The City of Pittsburgh is committed to ensuring that every child in our community has a healthy, safe, and playful childhood," said Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto.

For seven years, KaBOOM! nationally recognized Pittsburgh as a Playful City USA. The program honored cities and towns for taking bold steps to create more play opportunities for all kids. The Playful Pittsburgh Collaborative was proud to represent Pittsburgh in the KaBOOM! Playful City USA Play Leaders Summit national conferences.
