Jenkintown Community Playground

Jenkintown Community Playground

To continue the upkeep of our beautiful playground, consider purchasing a shirt or tote bag hand designed by Jenkintown Student Bella Smith and the Art Club sponsored by Mr. Slowik.

Jenkintown Community Playground was built by a generous group of parent volunteers 15 years ago. The playground needs upkeep to make sure is it accessible, safe, and a beautiful place to play for all students.
