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.
