Commerce Bank is contributing $100,000 to fund renovations at the Smith Playground, a free playground near 33rd and Oxford Streets that opened in 1899. The playhouse and 12-ft-wide wooden slide have delighted generations of children. The renovation project requires $2.5 million in order to reopen the playground for the summer season. Currently, they are about halfway there and making substantial progress toward their fundraising goals.
