PROJECTS

Healthy Eating, Active Living

At Pogo Park we believe that healthy food and regular physical activity are the building blocks for life-long health and for addressing specific health issues such as obesity, asthma and diabetes that are common in the communities we serve. In addition to building parks and play areas support that the physical, emotional and social development of children, we design our projects with the health of the whole family in mind. Our projects feature walking paths and spaces for exercise, raised beds and gardens where residents can grow their own vegetables as well as snack bars that serve healthy food and drinks. Our park programs include activities that get kids moving in fun ways, health-oriented community events and summer lunch programs. By utilizing the play and recreational elements we design and build to implement innovative on-siteĀ  programs, Pogo Park aims to improve the health of the entire community.
