Smith Memorial Playground and Playhouse

about

Smith Memorial Playground & Playhouse opened its doors in East Fairmount Park in 1899. Funded by Richard and Sarah Smith, the site was dedicated to the memory of their adult son, Stanfield. Smith's beautiful, 24,000 square foot Playhouse was designed solely as a play space for children by one of Philadelphia's most prominent late 19th century architects, James H. Windrim. The Playground is situated on its original historic landscape - 6 1/2 acres of open fields, wooded terrain, and sloped hills - and is home to the century old Ann Newman Giant Wooden Slide, a treasured play experience for generations of Philadelphia's children, as well as other unique pieces of play equipment. Smith's mission is to provide children 10 and under from diverse backgrounds with free and accessible one-of-a-kind play experiences that meet their physical, behavioral, and developmental needs.
