Landfall is a two-time honoree of KaBOOM’s Playful City USA, a national recognition program honoring cities and towns that ensure that kids in their communities, particularly kids from low-income families, get the balanced and active play they need to thrive. The median household income in Landfall is $33,750, significantly lower than the median household income of Minneapolis, $52,611. In 2010, local teens in Landfall presented a plan to the City Council for building a skate park. It didn’t pass, but the Council allocated funds for a bus route that would take teens to an existing park nearby. “It was an ingenious solution, especially in our economic times,” said Mike Vietti, communications manager at KaBOOM. Landfall plans to apply for grants to build a skate park in the city.
