Green schoolyards can incorporate the tenets of Pathways for Play by integrating “play pockets” (or opportunities for play) into walkable, bikeable community pathway networks. The term “pathway” covers all forms of network infrastructure, including greenways, trails and sidewalks that are used by pedestrians and cyclists to move around neighborhoods and mixed use developments, while “play pocket” refers to spaces and facilities along the way identifiable by children and caregivers as appropriate play environments. A how-to guide for developing similar networks in your community with proven activities for pathway play.
