A series of pedestrian safety improvements are underway for Parkside that will create a safer and more accessible way for Parkside residents and West Philadelphia to enjoy Fairmount Park. Improvements include pedestrian walkways, restriped bike lanes, roundabouts, landscaping, and a pop-up parklet at the Welsh Fountain.
