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.

To learn more about the pedestrian safety improvements coming to Parkside, view our recorded open house from October 19 where we hosted a presentation and Q&A on the Parkside projects.
