Project Play YQR’s mission is to increase community access to play. We spread awareness of the importance of play, document play spaces, and share research on play. We offer a community-maintained play calendar of free play events happening around the City. We highlight other play-based organizations and their programming. We host community events and offer free community programming. Communities at Play, funded by the City of Regina, is a series of family gatherings where we offer food and coffee from local restaurants and families can join us for come-and-go free play at different outdoor parks, the Regina Public Library, the MacKenzie Art Gallery, and the Regina Early Years Family Resource Centre almost every Sunday.
