Playful City USA
Have you seen the new signs around town, “Playful City USA – 2011”. Congratulation Rancho Cucamonga, this is one of the reasons I really like Rancho Cucamonga, they are constantly striving to improve this city. I read in the paper this morning that some in Upland are worried about the future of the Upland library because of potential budget cuts. Rancho’s library and city work so hard at establishing programs that not only improve the residences’ lifestyle, but also earn grant $’s and recognition so we do not have to worry about each and every budget cut.
So what is “Playful City USA”? Playful City USA is an application-based national recognition program that honored 151 cities in 2011 that make play a priority and use innovative programs to get children active, playing, and healthy. It is awarded by KaBOOM! a national non-profit dedicated to saving play for America’s children.
