TTF has worked with consultant Natural Lands to develop a plan centered on community input and equity, with the goal of encouraging park use and strengthening connections with communities. Learn more about People of the Park and Explorer Kits, two special projects implemented as part of the Master Plan process. The plan was developed with the help of an Advisory Committee, and widely shared surveys and focus groups. Many of you, your families, schools, and organizations shared your concerns and idea for the park. You told us your priorities — park improvements, operations, or programs. Your participation is the foundation for a new vision for Tacony Creek Park. This is an opportunity for the community to imagine and shape what we want to see for the future of Tacony Creek Park! Share the word and bring along your neighbors and stakeholders. Questions: Malcolm@ttfwatershed.org or 215-744-1853 https://www.facebook.com/events/261615496394570/
