Tacony Creek Stream Clean-Up

Come out to Tacony Creek Park on Friday, July 29 and be part of a clean-up crew that includes the Philadelphia Water Department, Parks & Recreation and the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership. From 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. we'll be removing trash and debris from a section of the creek to improve the waterway's health and preserve access to the Tacony. Last month's clean-up at the Juniata Golf Course (pictured above) was a huge success. Meet at the corner of E. Ashdale St. and Bingham St. to participate; email for more information.

Update: Waders, gloves and refreshments will be provided.
