33rd St & Oxford St, East Fairmount Park, Philadelphia, PA
Good place, in a backyard of a big house, that offers several different spots of open air toys, in a beautiful green area.
Absolutely it’s a place to be visited in a summer day, and indicated for children up to 10yo.
Teenagers would get bored...More
This is an old mansion in Fairmount Park converted into an indoor playhouse for kids under 5. Oh yeh and it is FREE. Tons of toys to play with in three floors. Only drawback is NO AC. The outdoor playground looks ridiculous but is closed...More
This place was great! It was donation based and they really put the kids first. They have lots of things for the kids to climb on. The slide is perfect and my kid was super happy on it saying again again. The mansion its self...More

A lot of activities for children under 7 but limited for those over 7. The large wooden slide was the best part of the park. The mansion was disappointing because it was for children under 5 for the most part.
This playground is adequate fun for kids 8 and under. My 10 year old was bored. The wooden slide is awesome. The play place has 3 floors. Different things on each level. You can go inside and stay cool on the really hot days. After...More
