We had so much fun in the Community Garden! Our annual Ladybug Release Party was a great success, where people across the community helped release tons of garden-protecting ladybugs into thhe Community Garden, located at the northwest corner of the Park.

Spring 2022 Love Your Park Week

Thank you to everyone who came out to the spring Love Your Park Day at Schuylkill River Park! We spread mulch, cleared debris from paths and drains, picked up garbage, and sanded and painted our new Adirondack chairs. Once they’re dry, the chairs will be added around the park for everyone to enjoy!

Thanks to Paulien for her hard work weeding and mulching the liriope bed between the two dog park gates! It was looking ruff.
