SMITH PLAYGROUND RIBBON CUTTING
On April 21st supporters and partners gathered to cut the ribbon on a refurbished South Philadelphia park. Back in 2015, former Eagle Connor Barwin and his foundation developed a plan that would revitalize Smith Playground in the West Passyunk neighborhood of South Philly. After more than two years and roughly $3 million, Smith Playground opened on a bright Saturday with a ribbon cutting. The seven and a half acres playground includes a state of the art fitness pod, a spruced up rec center, a brand new football field, two baseball fields and much more. Barwin and his Make the World Better foundation helped raise money for the project. PIDC was proud to assist in the project management of this transformational project.
