Celebrating a milestone
The start of the very first KaBOOM! playground build was on October 18, 1995 in our founding city, Washington, DC. And exactly 22 years later, KaBOOM! will build its 3,000th playground. It will be a very special, innovative playspace— in what was formerly a play desert— right back here in our nation's capital.
Then, we are throwing a grand opening celebration: PLAYce for Kids Day! The first KaBOOM! playground was completed on October 21, 1995, and PLAYce for Kids Day is happening on that exact day this year. This extraordinary milestone offers a perfect platform to spotlight the invaluable role of play in the lives of kids. This special PLAYce will celebrate our partners' legacy of impact and our shared vision for playable communities of the future.
Get involved! Join us as we celebrate a PLAYce for Kids with the building and grand opening of our 3,000th playground by donating to support our playground build or host your own PLAYce for Kids Day event in your community!
