The City of Uvalde and KABOOM! are committed to building joyful places to play and gather as the community continues on a journey to recover after tragedy.



After the initial playground project was completed months after the tragedy, KABOOM! identified and is working to build the number of playgrounds needed locally to ensure Uvalde has equitable access to places to play for kids in need of normalcy, restored childhoods, and joy.

  • The City of Uvalde

Uvalde has a long road ahead to recover, but this is a resilient and close-knit community. Coming together to build the new playground at DeLeon Park has given community members a way to unite around something positive as they try to heal. We are grateful for the rallying of support from KABOOM!, Archewell, and others who are committed to the long-term health and well-being of the kids and families in Uvalde.
