The Meet Me at the Park program is a collaboration between the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and The Walt Disney Company. Disney funds grants that NRPA awards to park and recreation agencies that submit the best ideas to help make outdoor play accessible to children and families in underserved communities.
Since 2015, NRPA and Disney have worked together through Meet Me at the Park on more than 130 park improvement projects. From Earth Month campaigns to the play spaces projects listed below, we are positively impacting the lives of more than 1 million children and families by increasing access to healthier lifestyles and safe, inclusive and innovative play spaces to enjoy for years to come.

Through the Meet Me at the Park Play Spaces grant program, we have seen some truly incredible stories come to life. These are just a few examples of what we have been able to achieve.
Since 2017, NRPA and Disney have annually funded 25 play spaces throughout the country. Together, we are inspiring thousands of kids and families to get up, get outside, get active and be their best. These new play spaces represent the best designs in terms of innovation and scalability. The map below highlights our 2017 and 2018 projects. Learn about our upcoming 2019 projects and grantees.
