Can you find these plants and animals in Tacony Creek Park?

Aqua Marooned!

Aqua Marooned! is a new card game that premiered in the spring of 2022 at 20 environmental centers across three states connected to the Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River (AWE); all of which are participating in the region-wide arts initiative Lenapehoking~Watershed: a place for water art and culture. Created by Philly-based immersive experience company Swim Pony and meant to be played outdoors, the game’s beautifully-illustrated location-specific cards cast players as extraterrestrial explorers sent to explore earth’s mysterious “watersphere.”

Using vibrant pictures of plants, animals, and the environment as well as a cast of playful alien characters, the game seeks to create a fun and engaging experience for players of all ages and experience levels. FREE card decks are offered at all events in Tacony Creek Park! We also have an expansion pack specific to the park.

TrailOff

TrailOff, a collaboration between PEC and Swim Pony Performing Arts, is a mobile app – free to download on iPhones and Androids – that brings new narratives to ten Circuit Trails in and around Philadelphia. Inside the app, you will discover audio stories written by local authors inspired by their experience walking on a trail.

Listen to the "Deeply Routed" story with Denise Valentine as you walk through Tacony Creek Park, starting at the I Street and Ramona Avenue gateway in Juniata Park. It’s all about water! Bring along a few of your friends for an immersive experience:
