Pop Up Playground 2015

A Pop Up Playground is a 1 day event where community members come together to provide kids an opportunity for free play. Kids are provided with loose parts, basic training and simple tools and then set free to construct their own playground. This type of free play inspires types of creativity and collaboration that children often don’t have access to due to time constraints imposed on their own and their parents’ schedules combined with limited access to safe places to play.


This event has already happened.

A Pop Up Playground for Albuquerque

A Pop Up Playground demonstrates that a playground is more than just a series of slides and platforms, but a space where communities and children can come together to inspire and learn from each other.

NMASLA and ACE Leadership are collaborating to bring a Pop Up Playground to the Sawmill District in Fall of 2015 giving Design Professionals an opportunity to work with High School Students on a project aimed at providing education on:

  • the meaningfulness of maintaining open spaces
  • the benefits of community building, and
  • the value of play in the development of creativity

The Pop Up Playground provides children in an underserved area of Albuquerque a different and creative opportunity to play.
