About Us

Our Story...

Virginia conceived POD 22 because she felt something was missing in the Family Entertainment Center arena.  As such, she set out to reinvent the concept of indoor playgrounds to make something beautiful and functional for kids and for parents.

Upon opening its doors in 2016, POD 22 became an instant sensation among Parents in Miami. The playground not only offered a gorgeous and completely differentiated space, but also included a luxurious nail salon where adults could engage in self-care while their children played. POD 22 received various branding and design awards as well as media accolades throughout the United States and abroad.

With the press came many requests. Little by little the brand grew to not only operate its single playground location in Miami, but to also offer design and business consulting services for external Clients that actively reached out for assistance. In May 2022 POD 22 sold its custom-made equipment in Miami to Kubo Play in order to dedicate to playground consulting rather than playground operations. POD 22 is currently engaged in various projects in Miami and New York. As with the original POD 22 space concept,  all playgrounds designed and/or executed by POD 22 focus on sculptural designs that invite children to play and everyone else to admire. POD 22 partners with various playground providers in the US and abroad in order to meet its Client goals.

Our Name...

A POD can be a vessel, a crate, a structure, a shell, a capsule, or a framework.  The “22” is a play on “Catch 22”  – a dilemma between mutually conflicting conditions. Simply said, we believe differentiation and design are everything when it comes to Indoor and Outdoor Play spaces. A place for kids doesn’t have to be displeasing for parents, hence, POD 22 is a special space where everyone is important regardless of age.
