Smith Playground

Meetup at Smith Playground

Meet up with other PFP parents and their babies, toddlers and big kids at Smith Playground in Fairmount Park to play in their very fun playground. There’s a toddler area with baby swings, a pirate ship, fire truck, train and more as well as a big wooden slide, a giant spider web (for big kids) and lots of ways to challenge climbers.
This event is appropriate for LGBTQ parents and grandparents and their kids 9 months – 10 years old. 
Look for PFP board member Despina Kontos in the toddler area. She’ll be wearing her PFP shirt.
Smith Playground is free admission with free parking, but they do ask you to consider making a small donation on your way in or out.
In case of inclement weather, the parents and grandparents and kids 5 and under will meet inside in the Playhouse.
