Playground Project – We wouldn’t be where we are today without the customers who started this journey with us. Our first branch opened 40 years ago in the welcoming city of Porterville, California. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of our first branch and thank the nearby communities where it all started, we’ve started a very special project. Bank of the Sierra will be donating a new playground to the City of Porterville. This playground will be one of the largest in Tulare County. The three story structure features a custom forest theme, 4 slides, and the capacity to accommodate 167 children! The playground is scheduled for completion in mid-January and is currently under construction at the Porterville Sports Complex at 2701 W Scranton Ave, Porterville, CA 93257.
