Kaboom! Playground at Jesse J. Warr Recreation Building
Funded by Hour Generation and the Markelle Fultz Foundation, in partnership with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Department of Parks and Recreation, Prince George's County, and KABOOM!, a new kid-designed, community-built playspace is being created at the Jesse J. Warr Recreation Building for kids ages 2-12 in Prince George’s County to have a place to jump, slide, and PLAY.
The existing playspace at the Jesse J. Warr Recreation Building is 20 years old and in poor condition. The new playspace will include play equipment for ages 2-5 and 5-12 and a new multi-sport court, as well as additional site enhancements.
The playspace that’s built here will be 100% community designed. To do that, we need community input. Tell us what you think of these playspace designs!
