We celebrated the beginning of summer with partners, friends and neighbors from our Tacony Creek Park neighborhoods — from Juniata to Feltonville to Olney — at three Tacony Creek Park gateways on June 25, 26, and 27th. We greeted almost 500 participants, engaging them in meaningful conversations about positive park changes, free educational programs, and various ways to help improve this green space.
