“My two year old and I think Smith Playground is awesome! The grounds are beautiful and all of the playground equipment was in working order. I like how there are separate play structures for younger and older kids. I met two staff members and they were very friendly. The wooden slide is very unique and I am so glad it has been preserved so kids today can enjoy it too!”
