You’ve seen the progress of the CHOP facility being built at Broad and Morris, being transformed from a much smaller Free Library location to a huge facility with quite a few different community uses.
Now here is a chance to check out the facility that opened earlier this month. The South Philadelphia Community Health and Literacy Center is hosting a block party on Saturday, June 11 to introduce the community to this new multi-use space.
This new facility includes the CHOP primary care facility, a health center, the soon-to-open Free Library location and the DiSilvestro Recreation Center.
The event is family-friendly, with live music, rides, games and more throughout the day. The block party will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the facility at 1700 S. Broad St.
