PWD Engineers Win Watershed Milestone Awards!

The Tookany/Tacony Frankford Watershed Partnership (TTF) has recognized two PWD engineers from the Office of Watersheds with their annual Watershed Milestone award!

Hasan Malik, PWD’s Stormwater Maintenance Manager was recognized with the Friend of the TTF Watershed award. Since he was a teenager, Hasan has been a leader both in the Northeast and throughout the City. An engineering student at Temple University, he founded the Northeast Tree Tenders, part of the PHS program, in 2008. Working with this Tree Tenders® group, he has been responsible for planting hundreds of trees in Northeast neighborhoods

Environmental Engineer, Rick Howley was jointly awarded TTF’s Watershed Municipal Leader award with Rob Armstrong from Philadelphia Parks and Recreation. As a team, these leaders garner support for the Tacony Creek Park and ensure that stream and trail design respects both the park environment and public concerns. Their partnership demonstrates that it is critical that City agencies work together – through the land and water partnership — to make Tacony Creek Park a community and natural destination.

Tickets are still available for the awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 22! Additional information is available at:

TTF Summer Block Party Series

Our friends at the Tookany-Tacony Frankford Watershed Partnership are hosting fun, family-friendly block parties every Wednesday in July from 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Join us at each of the new Philadelphia Parks and Recreation gateways in Tacony Creek Park to enjoy FREE soft pretzels, water ice, and giveaways. Explore the creek on a guided walk in the park, and learn about community resources! PWD and other area organizations will host hands-on learning experiences as well as provide information on different projects you can get involved in.

The TTF Watershed Partnership has worked closely with community partners including the Scattergood Foundation and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation to design ‘gateways’ to Tacony Creek Park. These areas connect neighborhood residents to the previously underused trails of the park. These trails have been redesigned to allow for maximum interaction between the user and the heavily forested natural area.

See the block party dates and locations below, we hope to see you there!

July 10th - I Street and Ramona Avenue

July 17th - Fisher’s Lane and Ramona Avenue

July 24th - Whitaker Avenue and Loudon Street

July 31st - Rorer Street and Roosevelt Boulevard

For more information about the block parties, please contact Alix Howard of TTF Watershed Partnership at 215-744-1853.
