Mission

Transforming lives by transforming public spaces

What We Do

Building healthy children and communities, one park at a time.

OUR GOALS:
To transform Iron Triangle parks and streets into safe, beautiful, green oases that provide 5,000 at-risk children with a safe place to play and the community with a place to gather.

To provide high-quality play opportunities at the park as a vehicle to spark and foster a child's healthy social/emotional, cognitive, physical, linguistic, and creative development.

To support the needs of parents so that they can support the needs of their children.

To hire, train, and empower community residents - those who know their neighborhood best - to plan, design, build, and manage these reimagined and rebuilt "Pogo Parks" themselves as a vehicle of workforce and community development.

To restore blighted and environmentally degraded parks and streets into vibrant green oases that provide an opportunity for the community to connect with the natural world and natural systems.

To create a new model for how to transform underutilized city parks into stimulating, green, and vibrant public spaces that can be replicated in other city parks in Richmond and beyond.
