Imagination Playground will return in May and will be available from 1PM-8PM on Tuesday’s, Thursday’s, and Saturday’s.
The playground is not available during some special events.
The Montgomery County’s Downtown Commons was selected as one of the grant sites for an Imagination Playground because of Montgomery County’s strong connection to Fort Campbell families. More than 9,500 military connected students attend local public schools and most military families choose to live in Montgomery County. The Imagination Playground will provide another fun opportunity for military children and their civilian peers with a creative play experience. Coming together to ensure the needs of kids are met demonstrates the pride and unity of the Clarksville-Montgomery County community.
Imagination Playground in a Cart™ is an innovative design in play equipment that encourages creativity, communication and collaboration in play. With a collection of custom-designed, over sized blue foam parts, Imagination Playground™ provides a changing array of elements that allow kids to create a play space that is constantly built and re-built by their imagination.
“We are grateful that KaBOOM! and the CarMax Foundation choose the Downtown Commons as one of the sites to gift with an Imagination Playground. We look forward to the kids in our community enjoying many hours of fun with this unique play equipment,” said Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett.
This Imagination Playground™ is one of 10 signature play products that The CarMax Foundation and KaBOOM! will grant during the Month of the Military Child in April of 2018. The partners are also working together to build a playground in Seattle, WA that will benefit kids of military families. As a part of its on-going commitment to KaBOOM!, The CarMax Foundation is building four playgrounds and providing 30 grants for Imagination Playground™ to organizations across the country, helping to reach 85,000 kids of military families over the next three years. The CarMax Foundation supports KaBOOM! in ensuring communities have great PLAYces for kids and families.
