Share ideas for FDR’s new playground!

by Sara Hirschler on June 14, 2021

Join us on Saturday, June 26th from 10am-12pm for the Pattison Playground Children’s Workshop.

The FDR Park Plan offers a once-in-a generation opportunity to reimagine a historic Olmsted Park to serve 21st century Philadelphians. The first phase of the Park Plan includes the construction of an exciting signature playground and picnic area celebrating FDR Park’s unique identity.

Kids and caregivers are invited to share thoughts and ideas for the new playground on Saturday, June 26th from 10am to noon. The Pattison Playground Children’s Workshop will invite participants to explore play memories, draw playful ideas, and tell stories about what play means to them. Registration is free and required by clicking here.

The Children’s Play Area, located near Pattison Lagoon will be set within a landscape of natural features including barrier-free paths, hills and planted spaces and will be located next to the park’s Welcome Center.

Design of the destination playscape will be funded by DCNR and Fairmount Park Conservancy.

This workshop is hosted by Fairmount Park Conservancy, WRT, Studio Ludo, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, and Friends of FDR Park.
