Thank you for attending last Tuesday’s CPDC Young Professionals Series at Dilworth Park. We are delighted that you chose to join us for a preview of our All-American BBQ event and beer garden, which continues through this Sunday with live music, tasty treats from the grill, and lots of fun.

Paul Levy briefly spoke about the impact that Dilworth Park has had on surrounding real estate and the positive influence that all of our Center City parks are having on the economic competitiveness and quality of life in the downtown. The effect is most evident at Sister Cities Park on Logan Square, often referred to as “the best multi-generational park in America.” This popular park offers something for everyone – a children’s discovery garden, boat pond, spray fountain, café, visitor center, and even a summer BYOB&B (bring your own bottle & blanket) event every Thursday evening on the lawn.

As I mentioned on Tuesday, the CCD wants to gauge interest in forming a “Friends” group to help support Sister Cities Park. If you’re interested in coming to a meeting to learn more about establishing a Friends of Sister Cities Park, please email Danielle Allen at dallen@centercityphila.org and say “Yes, I’m interested in learning more about a Sister Cities Park Friends group.” We’ll be in touch with those who express interest shortly.

Any questions? Feel free to call me at 215.440.5523.

Thanks again for coming to our Young Professionals event!
