540WMain & UR iZone Kaboom Playspace Project

19th Ward, Rochester, New York

How might we transform a lot in the 19th Ward into an equitable playspace and sensory garden?

At 133 Kenwood Ave, in the heart of the Arnett Neighborhood in Rochester, New York, we aim to create an equitable playspace where children can imagine pathways to opportunity through play, curiosity, and accessibility.


Thanks to the generosity of the KABOOM! foundation, a team of partners is working to design a playspace in the 19th Ward.

We are currently in the design and outreach phase of the project.

Want to get involved? Join in on the fun!

Through a highly collaborative and community driven approach, we are considering perspectives from a wide range of local leaders and residents.
