Playspace Partnership Assessment

Designed to help local decision makers end playspace inequity in their communities.

KABOOM! launches new Playspace Partnership Assessment available in Chart - mySidewalk's data visualization platform.


The playspace experts at KABOOM! have teamed up with  mySidewalk to deliver on-demand community playspace partnership assessments available now inside mySidewalk Chart. The report, authored by KABOOM! and engineered by mySidewalk, provides the data and analysis local decision-makers need to tackle playspace inequity in their community. 

KABOOM! uses the report with their partners to create a visual analysis of three indicators of potential playspace inequity: 1) population density of communities of color, 2) child dependency ratio, and 3) median household income. As Colleen Coyne, Senior Analyst at KABOOM! observes, “when we understand where all three indicators are occurring simultaneously and at high rates, we can best identify partner communities in need of great new places to play.”

“Creating this report using mySidewalk Chart has been an important aspect of the KABOOM! commitment to using data to drive our work. mySidewalk provides clear, user-friendly visuals to help us further understand where the communities we need to prioritize partnering with are located. We know that deep inequities exist in access to play infrastructure in cities across the country and this report is a first step towards using data to understand and address those gaps. Assessing and presenting complex data in an easily digestible way is key for KABOOM! and our funding partners to stay on track toward ending playspace inequity for good.”
