Smith Memorial Playground & Playhouse – Dating to the late 19th century, this Fairmount Park indoor-outdoor venue is a year-round favorite for little kids. Smith’s 16,000-foot house has three floors of play areas designed for kids five and under. The playground, situated on its original historic landscape—6.5 acres of open fields, wooded terrain and sloped hills—is home to the century-old Ann Newman Giant Wooden Slide, along with modern pieces of play equipment. Free, but donations accepted. 3500 Reservoir Drive, East Fairmount Park, (215) 765-4325, smithplayground.org
