Wednesday Meetup at Smith Playground

Meet up with other PFP parents and their babies and toddlers at Smith Playhouse in Fairmount Park to play in their very fun multi-room indoor play space. There are blocks, toys, trikes and more.
Our next meet up will be Wednesday, December 2nd. This event is appropriate for LGBTQ parents and kids 5 and under.
This is a meetup, so there won’t be a PFP board member or staff person present necessarily. Just ask other folks “are you here for the PFP meetup?” until you find the group!
If you can’t meet on a Wednesday, also check out our Saturday meetup schedule.
Smith Playhouse is free admission with free parking, but they do ask you to consider making a small donation on your way in or out.
 Check their website for directions See you there!
