Did you forget to enter the Blue Cross Broad Street Run lottery? No worries, you can still get a guaranteed bib AND support Philly's parks🌳 at the same time! More details here ⬇️

    5 Reasons to Run Broad Street with Us in 2018 - Fairmount Park Conservancy
    The Blue Cross Broad Street Run is America's largest 10-mile race and takes place on one single street in Philadelphia; Broad Street. Due in part to its nearly flat-and even slightly downhill route, it has become a favorite race among the running community for beginners and seasoned participants alike.

Hidden City Philadelphia shares an in-depth look at the return of two statues in their former locations at the iconic Fairmount Water Works. The project to fabricate and install the statues, "Mercury" and "Allegory of the Schuylkill (Nymph and Bittern)," was made possible thanks to the William B. Dietrich Foundation.

    Replicas Of William Rush Originals Return To Fairmount Water Works
    Two long-anticipated events have recently occurred at Fairmount Water Works marking a milestone in decades of restoration. Reproductions of two historic statues were installed in their former locations, essentially completing the exterior restoration of the site. While maintenance and ongoing conservation work will continue inside, the placement of the sculptures represents the capstone of efforts that began in the 1970s.

"Philadelphia has shown that hyperlocal stewardship on a citywide scale is not only possible — it can also result in real change." We 💚 this inside look at Philly's network of park advocates featuring tips from our very own Jennifer Mahar! #CivicCommonsPHL

    Best friends of the parks - Reimagining the Civic Commons - Medium
    An inside look at Philadelphia's citywide network of advocates In Philadelphia, caring for Norris Square Park was once a family affair. Every morning for decades, neighbor Raphael Feliciano walked the grounds, picking up garbage, pruning plants and helping keep the historic park clean and safe, even as the neighborhood struggled with drugs and violence.
