The Largest Swing Set In America Is Coming To Famous Philadelphia Park
How fun! The largest swing set in America is coming to a famous Philadelphia park. Philadelphia is the birthday place of the nation so it makes sense for us to have history-making landmarks. The playground will be located near the park’s new Welcome Center, that, organizers said, will “repurpose the park’s former guard house and stables, structures originally built in 1919” into an 8,000-square-foot Welcome Center with room for events — and 14 public bathrooms.
Remember the Philadelphia Flower Show was at FDR Park for two years in 2021 and 2022 because of Covid. The park is really awesome, and I feel like not enough people know and use it. The new playground promises treehouses, slides, and a massive “megaswing” that seats 20. It’s also right near the Novacare complex and all the stadiums in South Philly so can you imagine if you’re having a good time on the swings and one of the Eagles or Phillies players stop by and take a seat next to you?
Guests who want to buy a ticket to the Playground Party fundraiser will be the first to enjoy the swings on Thursday, Aug. 24.
