About Us

Vitales-in-SF-Feb-2012-199x300Alexandra’s Playground was founded in 2009 in memory of Alexandra, the beautiful daughter of Dr. Michael and Andrea Vitale. Its creation is based on the principle that active play leads to the nurturing of the spirit and, by extension, to the nurturing of young bodies and minds.

Our mission is to help parents to ensure their children have opportunities for safe, active play throughout childhood. We are committed to raising awareness about the importance of childhood play and providing opportunities for children to be physically active and socially interactive, opportunities which are increasingly threatened in today’s society. Read more about how we achieve these goals.
