“Play is the work of the child” - Maria Montessori 

This petition is designed to address the need to reopen the public playgrounds in Palm Beach County for use by the county’s children. As many facilities, businesses, and public locations in the county have been reopened with safety measures in place we believe it necessary for our children to have access to the public playgrounds. 

Parks have reopened allowing adults to use the park in a recreational manner; however children have not been able to use the playground facilities.

With appropriate social distancing and mask mandates in effect for adults we believe the playgrounds can safely reopen for our children’s physical and mental health. 

We urge the Commissioners to pass a mandate at the Commissioners’ meeting on 08/25/2020 to allow Palm Beach County playground to reopen for use on 8/26/2020 with a mask mandate in effect for all adults accompanying their children.
