With Baltimore City Public Schools, Baltimore City Recreation and Parks, Parks and People, and the Office of the Mayor, we will ensure every child has a place to play where they live and learn.


KABOOM! has a long history of working across Baltimore with city officials, community leaders, and stakeholders including kids and parents. In this latest phase of work across Baltimore, a key focus of the 25 in 5 Initiative in the city is to continue to build partnerships to promote child health and well-being through the creation and transformation of playspaces in communities with the greatest need.

Our Partners

  • Office of the Mayor
  • Parks and People
  • Baltimore City Recreation and Parks
  • Baltimore City Public Schools

Achieving playspace equity across Baltimore will send the message that we believe in our youth and know they’re capable of the brightest possible future. Playgrounds profoundly impact our young people: they’re a place to sharpen skills that will serve them for a lifetime, build friendships, and feel a sense of belonging. In line with my administration’s mission to prioritize youth, we want every young person across the city to be able to step onto a brand-new playground that they designed and their community built just for them so they can understand that they matter and that their community leaders see them and recognize their needs.

Mayor Brandon M. Scott
