Ongoing Initiatives

This Pizza Is Park

This winter we celebrated a pizza box takeover at Old English Pizza and Steaks. To energize the community about the upcoming construction of the Bridesburg Riverfront Park, Riverfront North Partnership worked with artists Aislinn Pentecost-Farren and Mary Welcome on an awesome limited edition pizza box highlighting the history and stories of Bridesburg. The box  featured games, trivia and interactive components.  Visit our dedicated pizza page for all of the details!

 

 

 

‘Unorthodox’ Play Space

Riverfront North Partnership is a #PlayEverywherePhilly winner for the Bridesburg neighborhood! This award from KABOOM!, funded by the William Penn Foundation allowed us to create an interactive play space that uses free play and guided activities that explore nature and language using themes based on the community’s layers of history and industrial usage. The mobile place space will be open soon, beginning at Bridesburg Recreation Center and then move to the site of the future riverfront park at Delaware Ave. and Orthodox Streets.  Read more about this project here.
