On Friday, October 25th we transformed an empty site into a kid-designed, state-of-the-art playground in just six hours at UCAP. The new playground will help make play the easy choice for kids and families in Capitol Heights, MD.
Through this playground project, UCAP worked with ACON Investments and KaBOOM! to make a difference in our community and address the most urgent needs of kids.
Play is essential to physical, creative, cognitive, social and emotional development. The children that reside in our homeless shelter needed a safe playground that would allow them to play and decrease stress and anxiety.
We are so glad we were able to bring this new playspace to the community!
