Play Everywhere uniquely addresses a wide range of community issues, from health and wellness concerns like child development and obesity, to economic development and competitiveness, to social equity across neighborhoods. Cities and towns, along with leaders from every sector working together, have the power to turn playspaces, and all spaces, into transformative theaters of activity, inspiration, and discovery—and in the process, to change minds and habits. These changes also enable cities to attract and retain talent, and to create vibrant, thriving neighborhoods where people can live, work and play together.
KABOOM! is the national nonprofit committed to ensuring that every kid, in every community, has access to an amazing place to play. Our work is prioritized around a commitment to racial equity. We work to identify where places to play are needed most and partner with kids, community members, and a diverse range of partners to build kid-designed playspaces that spark joy and foster a sense of belonging. Our community-centered approach ensures that all KABOOM! playspaces reflect the needs and wants of the community, feel safe and welcoming, and create positive impact for years to come.
