In 2005, we partnered with Friends of the Parks, a local park advocacy group, to survey all 450 of the Chicago Park District's playgrounds. Each summer from 2005 - 2012, we have re-visited the playgrounds to complete another safety evaluation. The Chicago Park District used our safety evaluation data, as one of the criteria for replacing playgrounds through their "Chicago Plays" initiative. In summer, 2015, we evaluated all the newly built "Chicago Plays" playgrounds in the city.
Take a look at this video to see some "before and after" photos of our playground projects. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CizF8_67R8&feature=player_embedded
