Volunteer for Love Your Park Fall Service Day on November 12

Parks are vital spaces in neighborhoods, providing the community with an outdoor area to gather, for children to play, for dogs to be walked and so much more.


To continue to keep these parks as beautiful and functional spaces, the community needs to get involved. On Saturday, November 12, Parks and Recreation is hosting their fall Love Your Park Day for the community to participate in cleanups and other activities.

What's Happening in:  Pennsport :  Queen Village 

Mother’s Day event at Washington Avenue Green is tomorrow; Pier 53 moving forward with ‘tentative date’

CORRECTION: June 21 is more of a “sneak peek” at the Pier 53 park, not a “tentative opening date,” DRWC said in an email: “We haven’t set a tentative date yet. The 21st is going to be an event celebrating the history and ecology of Pier 53, but is not a ribbon cutting. More details and times will be announced.”

Washington Avenue Green/Pier 53 is hosting a free nature-inspired event tomorrow, May 10, that includes arts and crafts, family activities and lunch. The festivities run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and kick off the opening day to the Love Your Park Week, a citywide celebration of Philadelphia’s diverse range of parks.

This event will look to focus on the natural experience of Washington Avenue Green as well help those still in need of a last-minute Mother’s Day gift by way of “Make & Take” arts and crafts opportunities.

Washington Avenue Green has been the subject of some exciting news recently as permits were granted to begin construction on the future pier park. While speaking at a history lecture for Pier 53 on May 4, Susan McAninley noted they have a “tentative opening date” for the park on June 21 after the tough winter delayed construction.
