Our mission is to provide as many children as possible with a place to learn, grow and play together. Play leads to the nurturing of the spirit and by extension, to the nurturing of young bodies. Active play leads to an active life, and that leads to healthier children. With an increase of childhood obesity and childhood diabetes, Alexandra’s Playground wants to promote healthy minds and bodies by using playgrounds as a catalyst for a long-term healthy lifestyle. To combat these growing issues and to also commemorate the life of a very special girl, Alexandra Vitale, Alexandra's Playground was formed.
