Historic Smith Playground Renovation

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.

Way to go Commerce Bank.

Smith Playground is a wonderful asset to Philadelphia. It is a shame what is there now pales in comparison to its glory days. As many areas in Philly it has seen better days. Hopefully the citizens of the city will realize that gems of this nature need to be supported and appreciated.
