Starkville Makes Play a Priority
Healthy communities offer safe and equitable playspaces for all residents. The Kaboom! Playful City USA program provided the needed spark to encourage Starkville residents to reach out and work together to make play a priority. Leaders representing the city of Starkville, Parks Commission, Starkville School District, civic organizations, and local businesses joined efforts in the spring of 2011 to set tangible goals for investing in play.
