    We are losing the central gathering spaces in our neighborhoods Children play in insular groups in backyards surrounded by privacy fences We literally create physical barriers that prevent kids from coming together to play spontaneously All those hours of free play time that most adults today enjoyed when they were were kids are long gone replaced by soccer practice and music lessons Participation in things like soccer and flag football and

    A good organizational history with some good advice for communities trying to create spaces for unstructured play Brings in the work of many other groups and individuals although at times it starts to feel like name dropping It didn't pull in as much research as I would have hoped but does refer to a few other resources for the academic side of this work
