About Us

A Playground for Walker is a community initiative that was started by parents of students attending Charlottesville City Schools (CCS). Our board is comprised of individuals invested in making Charlottesville the strongest community possible, including a recent CCS graduate and CCS parents who support thriving communities in both their personal and professional lives. Board member Christa Bennett donates her time to serve as our Executive Director.
