Working Together to SHAPE Perth Amboy

This is where Play Streets will be located.

Smith Street, Perth Amboy, where Play Streets will be located.

On February 20th we met with representatives from the City of Perth Amboy and the Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ) to establish the dates and the location of our Play Streets initiative. After much discussion around the best location, dates and times to best create awareness, we have decided that Play Streets should be hosted in the downtown area of Perth Amboy, specifically Smith Street on Saturdays during the peak summer hours. The proposed dates are June 15th, July 27th, August 17th, and September 28th. We have collaborated with HealthFirst NJ, Perth Amboy Recreation Department and other organizations to make each day a wonderful experience for our community. We look forward to helping families get a jump on a summer full of activities that will keep them growing and achieving. We are working collaboratively with our partners to provide sports activities, obstacle courses and healthy snacks during Play Streets; this will start a journey for kids that can last their entire future.
