Peace Tent Program

To expand violence prevention efforts in the neighborhoods around our parks, Pogo Park started the Peace Tent program. This program establishes a safe physical location where residents can acquire the skills necessary to resolve conflicts, improve communication, and practice understanding and compassion. As a result, Elm Playlot has become a place for teaching and modeling positive, nonviolent communication and interaction with others. The Pogo Park staff working in our parks are trained in conflict resolution strategies, CPR and emergency procedures and work closely with the City ensure safety at the park.
