Play Streets Jackson, Apply Today

Play Streets Jackson is sponsored by the City of Jackson and is a program that encourages neighborhood organizations and residents to temporarily close off residential streets and provide families with pop-up play spaces to safely come together and get active.

Moving traffic off a street for even a few hours helps us all remember that streets are for people.

How to plan a Play Streets event:

Select the Street
Play Streets are limited to one residential block, and cannot include an intersection.

Choose a date

Play Streets can take place during daylight hours any day of the week and the program is available from 6/15/16 to 9/30/16.

Brainstorm activities

You determine the programming at Play Streets! Check the Play Streets Jackson application for a list of suggested ideas.

Gather signatures from residents on the block.

Recruit volunteers.

Please submit your Play Streets Application to the Planning and Development Department, Office of City Planning. For more information please contact Ramina Aghili at
