Playful City USA

25 Playful City USA communities each awarded $20,000 grant

Congratulations to the $20,000 Let’s Play Construction Grant recipients! Help these communities make their playground dreams come true by lending a helping hand in the planning process or by donating to make a difference.

Dr Pepper Snapple Group and KaBOOM! awarded each of these cities a $20,000 Let’s Play City Construction Grant today! These communities received the grant because they were selected as 2012 Playful City USA honorees and will use the grants to build new playgrounds with community involvement.

The grants are part of Let’s Play, a community partnership led by Dr Pepper Snapple Group to get kids and families active nationwide. In 2011, as part of Let’s Play, Dr Pepper Snapple Group made a $15 million, three-year commitment to KaBOOM!, the national non-profit saving play by ensuring there is a great place to play within walking distance of every child. Together through Let’s Play, Dr Pepper Snapple Group and KaBOOM! will build or fix up 2,000 playgrounds by the end of 2013, benefiting an estimated five million children across North America.

The Playful City USA application process and associated grants will reopen this fall. Sign up, at right, to receive notification from us. Learn about other KaBOOM! grant opportunities.
