Friends of Schuylkill River Park is a non-profit, charitable corporation. It was formed in 1988 by concerned neighbors to foster:

  • Preservation
  • Beautification
  • Improvement
  • Maintenance
  • Use and enjoyment

The Park, nestled along the Schuylkill River, spans the area from Lombard Street to Manning Street. For active recreation it offers Schuylkill Pocket Veterans Memorial field – a baseball diamond and soccer field – tennis courts and basketball courts. Children enjoy our Markward Playground and recreation center and O’Connor Pool every summer. Park users enjoy lawns and tree-lined walkways, a conversation area and a community garden. A unique feature of the park is the Dog Run – a special enclosed area for dogs, featuring a doggie fountain and separate small and large dog areas, with a common corral entrance.
