Located at 1302 N. Bond Street, the 2500 square foot play space was designed and built by the children in the Oliver community with the help of BUILD, a broad-based, non-partisan, interfaith, multiracial community power organization rooted in Baltimore’s neighborhoods and congregations. Target® funded the majority of the project. The remaining $10,000 dollars was raised by the community to build the KaBoom playground. Where some see obstacles, we see the opportunity. BUILD is working in the Oliver community organizing residents, encountering youth participation and working alongside teachers and families to orchestrate a collective successes for KaBoom playground.
The KaBoom playground will bring families in the Oliver community together to learn about community assets, and how their involvement can enhance quality of life outcomes.
