Connecting the world one playground at a time.
Playgrounds may seem like such a simple thing to us as adults, but play is a way for children to explore and interact with the world around them. Through play, they build confidence and connection to the world around them, and through this simple act, the walls that surround them begin to fall.
Play is critical to social development, learning, and wellness. Play does not stop at childhood; rather, play is a lifelong pursuit. A dedicated play area is an integral part of a neighborhood and can offer so much more to a community than a place for children to burn energy.
It is a place for new friends and old faces, a place to enjoy a beautiful day and get back to nature, but it could be so much more!
It is our purpose to find innovative ways to rethink the way we design playgrounds. The needs of communities are changing, and we are ready to meet them.
You may visit one of our playgrounds and find a hot spot for free WiFi, an area for supplemental power or a free community-run garden. The possibilities of playgrounds are endless if you just take time to stop and imagine.
A play desert is an area where access to safe and engaging outdoor spaces is limited. To eliminate these areas, Global Playground has set out to build accessible playgrounds for all, so that every child has a safe place to play, explore, and grow.
Through events hosted by Global Playground at local playgrounds, community members will have the opportunity to build connections with members throughout their entire city!
Events will provide families with reputable and relevant resources that are available within their community, such as food banks, affordable housing and job aide.
Through additional fundraising and generous donations from people just like you, Global Playground will be able to issue grants and/or scholarships to help cover the cost of tuition of early childhood education for to families in need.
