Playfield in the Park is a complete fun fest for youth of all ages. The event includes 600 children and teens from around the country who have lost a parent to military service and their active duty service-member grief counselors for a day of fun, entertainment and distraction. Each year, participants are treated to an afternoon loaded with sports activities with professional athletes, picnic lunches with their grief counselors, visits with superheroes and other hands-on experiences. Most importantly, the event allows kids, many of whom have had to grow up too fast, the opportunity to just be kids during a challenging holiday weekend.
