Raise Your Helping Hand

The Children’s Park at Germantown and Southampton Avenues, also known as Jenks Playground,  is one of Chestnut Hill’s greatest treasures.

The Park is maintained by Friends of the Children’s Park in Chestnut Hill, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit,  which appreciates the generosity and involvement of people like you.

About Us

Built by community volunteers over two decades ago, this distinctive playground and gardens are enjoyed by Jenks students, residents, and visitors from afar throughout the year. The playground is maintained by an all-volunteer Friends of the Children’s Park board.
