Something new to be proud of:
The City of Columbia was honored as a 2014 Playful City USA designation for the first time by KaBOOM!, in partnership with the Humana Foundation.
“The City of Columbia is proud to be designated as a Playful City. We are committed to providing services and programs in our parks that will benefit our citizens, especially our youth. This is great news and we encourage everyone to get out and enjoy our wonderful parks this summer,” City Manager Teresa Wilson said.
The City of Columbia is among 212 cities and towns across the United States named as 2014 Playful City USA honorees. These communities are leaders in playability – the extent to which a city makes it easy for kids to get balanced and active play – and are making play part of the solution that can move the needle on countless urban challenges….
We feel like channeling Joe Pesci here. Whaddyez mean by dat? Playful how? Just how is it you t’ink I’m playin’ wit’choo?
In any case, we’re apparently not all that playful, since there are 212 other cities just as fun-loving as we are.
But how many of those others are Famously Hot? Huh? We didn’t think so…
