One of the first public playgrounds in Rwanda
Marked as one of the first public playgrounds in Rwanda, Ziggy Playground was funded by See Far Housing. In Rwanda, there are few playgrounds and soccer fields for children to explore imaginative play and there is a lack of affordable housing. See Far built sustainably designed modern multi-family homes, priced within the means of low to middle-income families in the City of Kigali. They approached Fletcher Studio of San Francisco, California to design a public playground and the future soccer field on a challenging hillside site. The Ziggy Playground was named to honor Fred S. Findling. Findling was affectionately known as "Ziggy" and fought for civil rights in the U.S. and was a constant champion of the underdog. Fred was a survivor of the Holocaust who never lost his childhood spark but unfortunately died in 2019 at 88 years old before the project was completed.
