A free community play space and outdoor play ground in Taos, New Mexico, dedicated to providing free fun for all the children of Taos. We have numerous features including a soft play structure, hobbit house, sand and water play areas, outdoor musical instruments, giant games, interactive panels and ride-ons for free drop-in play and exploration. We offer free classes and activities and free field trips for local schools and non-profits. We fell in love with Imagination Playground in a Box after reading a New York Times article and thought how fantastic it would be if Taos could have one. Many of the community's children come from low-income families (approximately 18% of the county's residents are below poverty level) and recent cuts to grants earmarked for Early Childhood Development threaten the provision of programs for these kids. Twirl is an organization that strives to provide a fun, safe, stimulating, innovative and inspirational play environment where children can come together and play for free. We have numerous amenities on-site, but believe the Imagination Playground system would provide a new and rich opportunity for us to satisfy our community's play needs. It would be made available at no charge to local children, schools and non-profits, either by hosting groups on site here at Twirl or by taking it to a chosen location for a group to use for the day. We would be able to ensure it was made available for use across Taos county, reaching an estimated 5,000 children.

Twirl is a community-oriented playspace, that offers free activities and an incredible space for children and families. There is nothing else like it in our area. I am amazed at the space and program they have created.
