Play Spaces

Creating a world of play

The well-being of communities starts with the well-being of our kids. That's why, as part of Built to Play, KaBOOM! is giving communities the opportunity to build creative play spaces and innovative playgrounds near them, where kids can be kids.

The Play Everywhere Challenge

Given the right opportunity, kids will play just about anywhere. So the Play Everywhere Challenge is all about incorporating play into the daily lives of kids in unexpected ways. Swings at bus stops. Play zones at laundromats. Sidewalks converted to racetracks with speedometers. If it's fun, it's fair game. So submit an idea. If yours is chosen, KaBOOM! will provide the grant through the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation funds to bring your idea to life.

Unique Playground Builds

Few things encourage play like the magic of an imaginatively constructed playground. If you build it, they will come—and they'll play. Especially if it's designed with creativity and thoughtfulness. We're teaming up with communities, and some of the best designers in the world, to build playgrounds together that kids will remember and love for a lifetime.
