Today we at the Make an Impact Foundation (MAIF), along with the Gene Haas Foundation, Home Depot Foundation, Barclays and other sponsors unveiled the new playground design for our next #KidsPlay playground, this time in Las Vegas. This playground is in partnership with KVVU Fox 5 and the Mayor’s Fund for Las Vegas LIFE is in Gary Reese Freedom Park.
The park will feature play equipment from Miracle Recreation, a pioneer in manufacturing thrilling playgrounds for nearly a century. The new playground will feature classic equipment such as swings and slides, and innovative elements like sensory play panels, fitness climbers, as well as a custom helmet climber with a tranquil space underneath.
MAIF partners with organizations to create places where all kids have equal opportunity and ability to play freely without barriers. The #LVKidsPlay build is no different; to make this exciting new play space a reality, we partnered with the Gene Haas Foundation and KVVU FOX5’s Super Build program, which brings together community partners committed to serving Southern Nevada families. This new playground is made possible through Super Build sponsors, Las Vegas Raiders, Barclays, D&L Roofing, Home Depot Foundation, and Les Olson. The Mayor’s Fund for Las Vegas LIFE, a vehicle for corporate and philanthropic partners to support innovative programs that improve quality of life for all Las Vegas residents with a special focus on vulnerable populations played a large part in providing surfacing and shade for the new playground.
Sponsors spent the last few weeks with team building demolition days, removing the original playground equipment. Installation of the new playground will begin immediately and is scheduled for completion before the end of the summer. A public grand opening celebration will occur at Gary Reese Freedom Park, located at 850 N. Mojave Rd., Las Vegas, NV. Exact date and time to be confirmed.
