Pogo Park transforms broken and little-used city parks in one of America’s toughest inner-city neighborhoods, Richmond, California’s “Iron Triangle,” into safe, green, and beautiful public spaces for children to play.
See Our Vision in this 3-minute video:
Pogo Park's uses the transformation of city parks as a vehicle for child development and community development.
Pogo Park works shoulder-to-shoulder with community residents – those who know their neighborhood best – to reclaim and transform parks in ways that better serve the needs of the community.
Pogo Park uses rich, creative, outdoor play as a vehicle to spark and foster healthy child development.
Pogo Park transformed two, once-abandoned, city parks in Richmond's Iron Triangle neighborhood: Elm Playlot and Harbour-8 Park.
The Yellow Brick Road is a safe bike and walking route through Richmond's Iron Triangle neighborhood that connects key community assets (parks, schools, churches, transportation etc.) together.
Pogo Park Products is a social enterprise that designs and builds custom play environments and products for customers.
Creating safe, green, and vibrant city parks in the heart of one of America's toughest inner-city neighborhoods makes a positive impact on the community in multiple ways.
