Chatter around South Philly High’s master greening plan is typically focused on the green roof, but did you know that a dog park is also on the agenda?
Now you do! At the corner of Broad and Jackson streets, the plan is to fence in the grassy area and make it an official dog park. This part of the master plan doesn’t depend on another phase being completed first — it’s its own mini phase. What does need to happen, though, is fundraising and support from dog owners.
Molly Devinney, of the Lower Moyamensing Civic Association, says that so far feedback from neighbors and community members has been positive, but all agree that the park has to be well-maintained because usage will be heavy.
