Devil’s Pool in Wissahickon Valley Park to close temporarily

The City of Philadelphia has announced that beginning this Saturday, August 18, 2018, and continuing every Saturday and Sunday through September 30, 2018, the Devil’s Pool area of Wissahickon Valley Park will be closed to all public recreational use.

As part of this closure, the Orange Trail and White Trail entrances to the Devil’s Pool site will be closed at both Livezey Lane and at Valley Green Road to ensure that no pedestrian, equestrian, or bicycle access is available to this area. All other trails, parking lots, recreational areas, and amenities throughout the Wissahickon Valley will remain open on these days.

Philadelphia Parks & Recreation is implementing this temporary closure to ensure public safety. The Philadelphia Police Department and Parks & Rec Rangers will ensure public compliance with the restriction of the trails accessing this area of the Wissahickon Valley.

    Do you spend more time working IN your business than ON your business? Listening to Your Business™ is a workshop designed to provide business owners with the critical evaluation tools and action steps they need to maximize the growth and profitability of their businesses and create a three-year vision plan. This workshop will take you and a small group of fellow entrepreneurs through a four-step evaluation and action process designed to enhance your company's performance, now and into the future. In Listening to Your Business™ you will: Set your three-year vision - A series of activities through which you will discover where your business is today and where you want to be in three years. Take a snapshot of your business - A process to determine what stage of development your business is in today (concept, start-up, growth, maturity, innovation or decline) and what stage you want it to be in three years from now. Evaluate where you are in the planning process - Assess what plans are or are not in place (feasibility plan, business plan, strategic plan, operational plan) and how they can be adjusted or created to maximize your company's success. Translate your goals into action steps - Nail down the actions and resources that your company needs to reach its three-year vision. Cost: $150
