Later this year, young children in 16 neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia will have the opportunity to engage with brand new playful learning installations designed to create literacy-rich environments, strengthen caregiver-child interaction and promote early language development. Thanks to Riverfront North, which applied for a grant for the project from KABOOM!, funded by from the William Penn Foundation, one of those installations will be just outside the soon-to-be-built Riverfront Park Bridesburg. It’ll be called UnOrthodox, and it’s one part of a greater effort called Play Everywhere Philly, put on by KABOOM!, a national nonprofit that works to achieve playspace equity.
