KaBOOM! Playground Build

The Mets partnered with KaBOOM!, Workforce Housing Group and The Child Center of New York to build a playground in an underserved Far Rockaway community. More than 150 of Mets Front Office staff volunteered to help transform an empty site into a kid-designed, state-of-the-art playground in just six hours.

The Mets Foundation funded the project that will help make play the easy choice for kids and families in Far Rockaway for many years to come.

Mets ownership, Mr. Met and volunteers from the community joined the effort and the children from the neighborhood were able to see their new playground come together in just one day!
