Together with volunteers just like you, Global Playground will reduce the number of play deserts around the world and give every child a place to be a kid. A play desert is an area that has limited access to safe and engaging playgrounds. Currently, across America, 55% of residents live in a play desert. To make matters worse the parks that are in predominantly minority neighborhoods are half as big and serve nearly 5x as many people. This is not only unjust but also has consequences that impact public health, well-being, and resilience. Global Playground is working to close this park equity gap and uplift these communities in play deserts.
Playgrounds are more than just a structure for play, they are places where a community gathers, a place for new connections and old friends. A place for growth, exploration and imagination.
