The Burnett Street Park project was made possible through a partnership with the Clinton Foundation's Health Matters and Too Small to Fail initiatives which aim to improve health outcomes and disparities as well as generate public awareness on the importance of early childhood development. This Talking is Teaching playground is the Foundation's first national model to incorporate literacy prompts in a developed park. The Clinton Foundation's partner, Landscape Structures Inc. donated and installed the playground equipment and behavioral and literacy panels.
