Our friends at the Tookany-Tacony Frankford Watershed Partnership are hosting fun, family-friendly block parties every Wednesday in July from 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Join us at each of the new Philadelphia Parks and Recreation gateways in Tacony Creek Park to enjoy FREE soft pretzels, water ice, and giveaways. Explore the creek on a guided walk in the park, and learn about community resources! PWD and other area organizations will host hands-on learning experiences as well as provide information on different projects you can get involved in.

The TTF Watershed Partnership has worked closely with community partners including the Scattergood Foundation and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation to design ‘gateways’ to Tacony Creek Park. These areas connect neighborhood residents to the previously underused trails of the park. These trails have been redesigned to allow for maximum interaction between the user and the heavily forested natural area.

See the block party dates and locations below, we hope to see you there!

July 10th - I Street and Ramona Avenue

July 17th - Fisher’s Lane and Ramona Avenue

July 24th - Whitaker Avenue and Loudon Street

July 31st - Rorer Street and Roosevelt Boulevard
