Pop-Up Playgrounds

New Mexico

A Pop-Up Playground is a temporary event in the tactical urbanism family that brings people together around an activity to raise awareness of an issue or need. Participants have the freedom to build whatever they want using a variety of donated or recycled parts like cardboard, PVC pipe, wire spools or wooden pallets and then take it all apart.

Groundwork Studio has led four separate pop-up playground efforts and is currently in the planning process for several more with nonprofit and municipal clients. Local businesses and organizations provide materials, support and volunteers which reveals and creates partnerships.

Pop-Up Playgrounds and other pop-up play events bring a diverse group of people together to identify and problem-solve issues surrounding community needs and resiliency.
