Kaboom! Playground at Bladensburg Community Center

Project Background/Description

M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation, Prince George's County, and Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation, in partnership with KABOOM!, will be building a new kid-designed playspace at Bladensburg Community Center for kids ages 2-12 in Prince George’s County to have a place to jump, slide, and PLAY! The existing playspace at Bladensburg Community Center is 20 years old and is heavily used by both the community center patrons and the surrounding community. The new playspace will include play equipment for ages 2-5 and 5-12, a new multisport court, and additional site enhancements.

KABOOM! is the national nonprofit that works to end playspace inequity for good. They define playspace inequity as a lack of access to and a sense of belonging in quality playspaces due to the effects of systemic racism in communities across the country. They are working to end playspace inequity by uniting with communities to build kid-designed playspaces that spark joy and foster a sense of belonging for communities of color who disproportionally have less access to play where they learn and live.
