Blue Shield of California, KaBOOM! and the City of San Gabriel work to end playspace inequity with a new playground in San Gabriel
KABOOM! is the national non-profit that works to achieve playspace equity. Kids who don’t have access to play miss out on childhood and are denied critical opportunities to build physical, social and emotional health. So we amplify the power of communities to build inspiring playspaces that spark unlimited opportunities for every kid, everywhere. KABOOM! has teamed up with partners to build or improve 17,000+ playspaces, engage more than 1.5 million community members and bring joy to more than 11 million kids. San Gabriel was fortunate to be one of these communities with the build of our playground at Smith Park in March 2019. We are fortunate, yet again, to have the opportunity to partner with KaBOOM! and our funding partner, Blue Shield of California, to plan, design and build a new playground at Roosevelt Park, a pocket park located at 5410 North Delta Street. The playground which will be installed in December, will give kids an incredible place to play close to where they live and learn, an opportunity that is often hard to achieve.
