Get outside, meet your neighbors and do a good deed all at the same time!
Queen Village is fortunate enough to have a group of dedicated volunteers who help maintain all of our green spaces. Saturday, May 11, is Love Your Park Day, sponsored by Philadelphia Parks and Recreation and the Fairmount Park Conservancy
- Mario Lanza Park (200 block between Catharine and Queen Streets) - Friends of Mario Lanza Park will be at the park from 9am – 1pm. Join us for a bit of weeding and seeding, spreading mulch or sweeping up. Kids welcome and teens, get those volunteer hours in! Please spread the word and invite friends, we need more than help than usual because a couple of our regulars are away. This is a great opportunity to meet neighbors and enjoy the outdoors. Please show up for an hour or two. As a bonus coffee and donuts will be served, courtesy of Java Cafe.
- Moyamensing Point (Christian and Moyamensing at 2nd) - The
Friends of Moyamensing Point will be out in force doing weeding–all welcome!
- Shot Tower Playground (100 block of Carpenter Street) - Show the Shot Tower Playground a little love by helping your neighbors clean up the playground. We’ll provide shovels, garbage bags, wheel barrels, flowers, and compost. Our “clean up” plan involves planting annuals in containers, placing compost around all of the trees, and giving the large blue garbage cans a new coat of paint. Be sure to wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty.
- Weccacoe Playground (400 block between Catharine and Queen Streets) - 9 a.m. – 1 pm - Come meet your friends and neighbors, bring your children, and help in the spring cleaning of the playground!
