33rd St & Oxford St, East Fairmount Park, Philadelphia, PA
It was a very nice, big playground. Not just ordinary swings and slides. It had a wooden slide where you have to use a burlap bag to get down. Very different climbing structures and rubberized grounds near all the equipment. Kids loved it.

We took our two year old grandson here to play and what a fun time we had! No admission charged but well worth the $5 suggested donation. Loads of space to run and explore and great playgrounds that are wonderful for a specific age group....More
My husband and I took our 4 1/2 year old son here and what a gem! Loved the concept and the fact that he could play inside and outside. We arrived around 3:30 p.m. Each floor including the basement was a playroom or reading room...More
