    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.
