Keepers Community page
Although people from all over visit Tacony Creek Park, it is truly a critical asset for its adjacent neighborhoods -- East Oak Lane, Lawncrest, Olney, Feltonville, Juniata Park, and Frankford (zip codes 19120 and 19124). Almost 200,000 people live in these neighborhoods, from many different backgrounds and who speak many languages. It is a rich and diverse area that has experienced public disinvestment for many years.

Community members visit and enjoy the park for many reasons, on their own, with their families and friends, and often through organized TTF and partner-sponsored programs and events. In fact, the ideas and energy shared by community members are the basis for programs. Programs are led by community members. Community members make cleanups, plantings, and improvements possible and lead Tacony Creek Park Keepers, the friends group for the park.

Park Stories and People of the Park are special projects that highlight the people, just like you, who love Tacony Creek Park. Would you like to share your park story?
