In an op-ed for philly.com, the Conservancy's Executive Director Jamie Gauthier and the Knight Foundation's Patrick Morgan write, "Across the city we are seeing more community members exercise their civic muscles, and we invite all Philadelphians to champion the city’s civic spaces, too."

    How you can help Philly reimagine our civic spaces | Opinion
    Philadelphia's growing skyline is not the only sign of the city's ongoing renaissance. Recent and deep investment in the public spaces that bring us together is also a sure signal of our city's revival. This week, Philadelphians welcome two new park projects as they complete the first phase of their development: Centennial Commons in West Fairmount Park and the Rail Park in Callowhill.

“The park is something that everybody owns. It can bring everybody together in a geographic sense, but it’s also a public asset that lots of folks in the neighborhood care about."

    In Common: Centennial Commons carves out space for East Parkside neighbors to connect
    A row of richly detailed, Roman brick residences lines the long 4100-4200 blocks of Parkside Avenue, with terra-cotta flourishes, deep-set porches, and Flemish rooflines iced with copper. They were built by a beer baron in the 1890s, attracting solidly middle-class families.
