Santee Wins Playful City USA Honor

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

KaBOOM!, a national nonprofit group, today honored the city of Santee as a “Playful City USA” for its ongoing commitment to a robust parks system and providing opportunities for children to enjoy the outdoors.
Santee was one of three cities countywide, 26 in California and 217 nationwide to receive the “Playful City” designation. The other two local cities to receive the honor are Encinitas and La Mesa.
Sponsored by the Humana Foundation, this recognition is given to communities that demonstrate a commitment to community partnerships that foster opportunities for children to play.
Santee earned the recognition for the second consecutive year by partnering with local school districts and nonprofit groups to provide joint-use recreation facilities and playing fields for local youth.
By earning a Playful City USA designation again, Santee is eligible to apply for grants to pay for park improvements, playground equipment, and recreation programs.

One of the primary goals of Playful City USA is to encourage communication and idea sharing between cities. For a complete list of winners or more information, click here.
