The Tacony Creek Park Master Site Development Plan is underway! TTF is excited to be partnering with consultant Natural Lands on a Master Plan process for the 300-acre Tacony Creek Park, including Juniata Golf Course, and the planned and partially constructed Frankford Creek Greenway.

This plan will encourage public use, strengthen connections with communities, and foster stewardship for this special part of the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed. Tacony Creek Park is located in the heart of some of Philadelphia’s most ethnically and culturally diverse neighborhoods, with many different languages spoken. The last Master Plan, completed in 1997, focused on park conservation and ecology. This plan centers on community input and equity.

Both Tacony Creek and Frankford Creek run through historically industrialized high-density areas, lacking access to green space and associated recreational opportunities. This is a huge opportunity for the community to imagine and shape what we want to see for the future of Tacony Creek Park!
