Pogo Park

Pogo Park is an entrepreneurial, grassroots, community-based organization in Richmond, California, whose mission is to transform lives by transforming public space.

This elegant and successful proposal on their behalf resulted in a $47,000 grant from The California Endowment. As a result, Pogo Park is now deep in the process of re-building Elm Playlot, a small, city park in Richmond–a park that is located in the middle of a neighborhood devastated by poverty, violent crime, and a pervasive sense of hopeless.

They believe that transforming a city park can transform a community.  I believe that words and ideas, well expressed and well presented, can make a difference.
