The volunteers worked with KaBOOM!, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to saving play by providing a great place to play within walking distance of every child in America. The Phoenix playground, one of more than 150 such projects led by KaBOOM! this year, is the ninth playground created by KaBOOM! and UnitedHealthcare as part of the latter’s “Do Good. Live Well.” program, an employee-volunteer initiative to prevent hunger, diabetes and obesity.

The new 2,550-square-foot playground includes wobble wheel monkey bars, an inclined hanger, a 6’ arch bridge, a wave climber and a Glide Slide. The playground’s design is based on drawings by Arizona children who participated in a “design day” event in August.

Arizonans for Children’s Phoenix Visitation Center provides a comfortable and neutral environment specially designated for supervised visitations so that children who are wards of the state can establish and maintain the best possible relationship with non-custodial parents and family. Currently, the facility does not have a playground for children to enjoy.

“We expect that this glorious KaBOOM!/UnitedHealthcare playground will have a transformational impact on the quality of the visits between the biological families and the abused, abandoned and neglected children who are trying to survive the foster care system,” said Kaye McCarthy, President of Arizonans for Children, Inc. “The playground will be pivotal to a healthy family bonding experience and successful family reunification.”
