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.
PLAYce for Kids Day will take place on October 21. Join us in our celebration by investing in our PLAYce for Kids Day or hosting your own in your community!
