Playground Project – Bank of the Sierra completed its 40th Anniversary playground project late in January 2018 with a special kid-friendly Grand Reveal event, packed with face painting, balloon twisting, raffles, giveaways, and a toast with milk and cookies. Rosa Brothers Milk Company generously donated the milk for the event. Porterville is where the Bank started 40 years ago, so it was only natural to donate the play structure to the members of the community who helped get Bank of the Sierra to where it is today. This playground is the most unique in the county! The structure itself is three stories high and features a custom forest theme, four slides, and the capacity to hold 167 children! The playground is located at the Porterville Sports Complex at 2701 W Scranton Ave, Porterville, CA 93257.
