At UCD we believe public spaces should be sources of delight, comfort and civic pride - equally appealing to those who seek respite or bustle. Here’s a quick primer on what we have in store for our neighborhood this spring!

    Enjoy Spring in University City
    UCD works year-round to keep our streets beautiful, green, and safe for pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers. Whether we are planting 10,000 bulbs at The Porch at 30th Street , designing and installing custom social seats for the public to enjoy, working on traffic calming efforts, providing landscape services through our Green City Works landscape team, or putting the final touches on Trolley Portal Gardens , our impact can be felt throughout the neighborhood.

    Grave gardening: Tending more than just flowers
    "How Does Your Garden Grow" is the question posed by an age-old nursery rhyme. Tony Dokoupil has our most unusual answer: Every great summer garden really begins in the winter, with a ritual of seeds and shovels. But these gardeners -- volunteers at The Woodlands, a 54-acre oasis in West Philadelphia, have an extra challenge each year.
