Kellogg Park is the most technologically advanced playground in the United States (and in all of North America). It's a "pocket playground," a mini playground tucked into the Make It Right Foundation development of 150 new homes in the post-Hurricane Katrina Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans. It is the first of its kind in America: A solar-powered, environmentally friendly playground built with supplies from local businesses and landscaped with native greenery. Materials are all non-toxic, recyclable and sustainable. Kellogg Park emphasizes not only mental and physical activities, but also aims to stimulate kids into thinking about their local ecology.
