With our 23rd Playground Build wrapping up, the Eagles remain proud of this core project rooted in the belief that every child deserves a safe place to play and learn. Vibrant school playgrounds improve attendance, increase activity, reduce injuries and violence both in the play yard and in the classroom, while increasing parent engagement and building community. We build playgrounds to invest in our children and the future of Philadelphia.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Building The Playground
The annual community-changing playground build teams the entire Philadelphia Eagles organization, including players, coaches, and staff members, with a Philadelphia school community to transform the barren asphalt school yard into a beautiful and imaginative safe space for play and recreation. The project includes installation of a large play structure, a mini Eagles turf field, colorful murals and mosaic tables.
