LOVE Your Park Fall Service Day Signature Site Event at Norris Square Park

November 4 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Neighbors of Norris Square Park in Kensington are invited to join Fairmount Park Conservancy, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, and the brand new Friends of Norris Square Park for a special signature site event!

We’ll host a volunteer workday to spruce up Norris Square Park, including painting the playground wall and benches, planting and mulching trees, collecting leaves for compost, and more. Volunteers and neighbors will get free breakfast and coffee (from Buzz Cafe!) as well as a special t-shirt, have the chance to screen print a special Norris Square tote bag, and get to provide feedback on future park activities and improvements.

Mayor Kenney and Councilwoman Maria Quiñones-Sanchez will join us to kick off the festivities, local DJ Kenny West will keep us moving and having fun, and TreePhilly will be giving out FREE yard trees. Please click here to register for a tree.

After the workday, the League of Creative Interventionists will provide lunch from a local restaurant and invite community members to share their vision for Norris Square with the new Park Friends Group.

10:00am – Workday begins
11:00am – Kick-off with Mayor Kenney & Councilwoman Quiñones-Sánchez; TreePhilly giveaway begins
