Center helps communities turn research into practice to positively impact play and recreation outcomes

PlayCore believes that play and recreation are essential for a healthier, happier society and critical to improving the quality of life for diverse individuals, families, and communities. Play and recreation transforms lives and builds communities. To better represent the spectrum of work, extensive research, network of scholars that informs their work, and the robust library of resources offered in the study of play and recreation, PlayCore is happy to announce the rebranding of their Center for Professional Development as the Center for Outreach, Research & Education (CORE).

PlayCore is an information and knowledge resource that positively advances diverse community needs, and CORE perfectly illustrates the focus of their purpose-driven services. The Company’s commitment is to be a trusted resource to help communities turn research into practice in order to positively impact play and recreation outcomes across every community.

Through their work, the company assists communities in advancing the quality of play and recreation spaces through the implementation of research, continuing education, best practice programs, and community advocacy. They have an unequalled network of the world’s foremost scholars to conduct original research and gain insights, then mobilize this research into best practice design guides and activity programs.
