Bartram’s Mile: Design Workshop

November 10, 2012 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am

Join us for an engaging design workshop and find out more about an exciting project that is underway to convert one mile of currently vacant riverfront property into public green space! Your input is essential to this project and will help the City of Philadelphia create a vibrant public space to be enjoyed for years to come.

This project is currently being referred to as “Bartram’s Mile” and several partners are involved: Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, the Schuylkill River Development Corporation (SRDC) and the John Bartram Association. A series of public events and meetings will be convened over the next few months by PennPraxis.
