Kid City Project

Welcome to Kid City! 

Maplewood Parks & Recreation has teamed up with Z Puppets Rosenschnoz for family-friendly, fun public art that puts youth at the forefront of creative community revitalization. All year long, Z Puppets' Kid City Artist Team will bring youth together to laugh, learn, play and spark connections across cultures in Maplewood through the arts.  Kid City invites the community to re-image Maplewood.

Upcoming Kid City Programs:
  • Kid Council -  Students ages 11-13 will join Kid City artists to brainstorm, improvise, and act out solutions to real-life challenges in Maplewood identified by the Mayor. This camp is free and registration is required.  
  • August 8-12, 1:30PM - 4:30PM
  • At Trinity Baptist Church, 2220 Edgerton Street
