Play for All at Raab Park is a project to build an inclusive playground in North Kitsap that can be enjoyed by every young person.
Play for All at Raab Park is a community effort to build an inclusive playground in North Kitsap County. This is a project of the Poulsbo Rotary Club, operating in partnership with a citizen steering committee, the Kitsap Community Foundation, and the City of Poulsbo. Can you help us raise $600,000 to purchase and install inclusive playground equipment at Raab Park in Poulsbo? We appreciate your support!
Studies have shown that the act of play helps children and young people develop complex language skills, symbolic thinking, motor skills development, and social skills. Play is so important to optimal child development that the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights has recognized it as a right of every child. Free play leads to higher self-esteem. These benefits have been noted in all children, so our playgrounds need to accommodate all children—and currently not a single one in North Kitsap does.
