Welcome to Philly Play!
At a time when Philadelphia families are busier than ever, Philly Play helps kids live healthier lives by giving families access to active play opportunities.
That’s important because, according to the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, obesity is an increasingly costly and dangerous risk for kids in our city. Of the top ten largest cities in America, Philadelphia ranks number one when it comes to the percentage of children with obesity and number two when it comes to the percentage of children who are overweight.
But we can change outcomes for Philadelphia children if we get them off of the couch, out of the house, and engaged in at least 60-minutes of heart rate-elevating, active play every single day.
While you’re here, take a look around, add your name to our list of supporters to stay informed, and maybe even sign up to get involved.
Thanks for visiting and don’t forget: be active!
Councilman Bobby Henon
