Play -- in all its forms -- is a powerful thing.

The city of Anaheim recently teamed with KaBOOM!, the Anaheim YMCA and Disneyland Resort to build Anaheim's seventh KaBOOM! playground, this one at Lincoln Park. 

In just a few hours, an underused portion of a field was recently transformed into a bright and fun play area. 

Nearly 1,200 neighborhood kids will benefit from this new play space built by volunteers in a single day. 
Grab a book and head to your favorite reading place, because this summer Anaheim libraries want you to "Read for the Win!" 

Participants can win prizes for reading and take part in fun games and competitions such as the Chocolate Olympics.

Live entertainment in the form of a magic show by California Joe is also planned.

Teen programs kick off the season next Tuesday, followed by programs for kids and adults on June 20. More.


Love Anaheim 
Gives Back

Downtown Becomes
Summer Nights Under the Stars
Love Anaheim continues spreading the love by helping the community.

Last month, more than 600 people came together with city employees, schools, businesses, nonprofits and faith-based and service groups to perform more than 40 acts of charity and public service. 

The event was a tremendous success, thanks to all who came out to give back.
Love Anaheim will meet again on May 28 for their West District Hotel Food Distribution to provide groceries to needy residents at up to four local hotels. 

June 18 brings another event, the West District Neighborhood Trash Cleanup, where volunteers will walk up to five different routes in the neighborhood and pick up trash.

For more, click here.
A barber shop, haberdashery, artisan cheese counter and an eclectic food hall.

These are some of the cool things you'll find in downtown Anaheim. The landscape along Center Street Promenade and Anaheim Boulevard has undergone a big transformation in recent years, so it's no surprise a new name is emerging to better reflect the upbeat and energized environment you'll find there. 

In the coming months, you'll start seeing the name CtrCity appearing throughout the heart of Anaheim along Center Street Promenade, Anaheim Boulevard and Harbor Boulevard. You may have already seen it on a new bus rolling through the area. With a tagline of "Now leaving suburbia. Welcome to euphoria." the CtrCity area is sure to impress.

A fantastic summer's worth of entertainment begins June 17 at Anaheim's Pearson Park Amphitheatre. 

Starting with Circo Etereo Circus and continuing through September with attractions and performances such as Tausala Polynesia Spectular, Ian the Magician, Anaheim Ballet School, Taiko Project, Battle of the Bands, free movie screenings of "Inside Out" and "Minions" and more!
This summer's lineup of entertainers, performers and movies has something for everyone. 

If you're a teen band and interested in the fan-favorite Battle of the Bands competition this year, please apply by June 3. Click here for the application.

Water Conservation Poster Contest Winners
In celebration of May as Water Awareness Month, Angels Baseball honored 24 young artists of Anaheim Public Utilities' 26th annual Water Conservation Poster Contest.

First- through eighth-grade students from Anaheim elementary and junior high schools received trophies earlier this month during a pregame ceremony on the field at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.
Water Awareness Month provides Anaheim Public Utilities the opportunity to thank residents for conserving water and remind them that California's future water supply remains uncertain. The contest is part of the annual campaign to emphasize the necessity of long-term water conservation to protect water resources for future generations.
