Streets in two Rochester neighborhoods were shut down Monday for pop-up play spaces.

PlayROCs Play Streets is a resident-driven pilot program that turns neighborhood blocks into safe play areas. Play Streets gives kids the opportunity to play, beautify their neighborhoods, and learn new activities along with the value of healthy eating. 

“We’re encouraging neighbors to come out, play with some of the kids – be a role model for them, show them that you can continue that active lifestyle throughout your adult life,” said Beechwood Neighborhood Coalition board member Joe DiFiore.

The following streets will be shut down to provide a safe and fun place for kids to play.

Tuesday, August 29 and Thursday, August 31: Treyer Street (between Lill Street and North Clinton Avenue)
10 a.m. –  2 p.m.

Tuesday, August 29 and Wednesday, August 30: Greeley Street in Beechwood (between Parcells Avenue and Melville Street)
Noon – 4 p.m.
