Puma Playfield at Concord International Elementary

Transform a muddy, under-used field into a fun, functional outdoor space that attracts activity, facilitates play, encourages health, & supports connection in the underserved South Park Community.


Historically low levels of investment in South Park have resulted in limited public spaces for kids to play. Inequities are exacerbated by the impacts from diesel emissions from surrounding highways, proximity to the Duwamish superfund site, waste facilities and industrial development — playing a significant role in the community’s health. Improvements to the Concord campus are critical to the needs of the diverse community.

Two years deep into the pandemic, the Concord International and South Park communities are small and under-resourced but have a lot of dedication, heart, and are so enthusiastic about the rethinking of the Puma Playfield. Now more than ever — as we begin to emerge from a great period of pandemic-fueled isolation, anxiety, and inactivity — a fun, useful, functional outdoor space that is instrumental in facilitating and encouraging play, activity, health (mental and physical) and community is of the greatest value to our kids and neighbors.
