Capitolo Playground

A Rebuild project


Capitolo Playground is a 4.1-acre site that hosts a variety of youth and young adult activities. In addition to a two-room building with multipurpose spaces, it features:

  • Playground equipment.
  • A sprinkler.
  • Sports fields.
  • Basketball courts.
  • A community garden.

Rebuild has funded the installation of a new playground and security cameras at the site. Plans for further improvements will be announced soon.


In April 2019, Rebuild, Councilman Squilla, and the Mayor's Office held a ribbon-cutting for the new playground at Capitolo.

In summer 2019, the Philadelphia Union and Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer announced that Capitolo would be the first of 15 Rebuild sites to receive a mini-pitch as part of a $3.5 million athletic field fund.
