Purple Line Adventure Play grew out of a neighborhood project called "Evanston Games in the Park" (referred to as EGP below), which I started in July of 2015. EGP came to be because of my desire to connect and help my children connect with others through the medium of play, fun, spontaneity, and movement outdoors. Gradually, EGP started branching off into other play spheres: pop-up adventure playgrounds, neighborhood street play, loose parts at school recess. The plan is to become a nonprofit in the next few years, and for right now Purple Line Adventure Play is becoming an L3C, a low-profit company with a socially beneficial mission. Our mission is to bring unstructured play opportunities to children in Evanston and the rest of Chicagoland.
