Squirrel Hill Falls Park Clean-Up Day

A group of over 25 local philadelphias, mostly from west philly, came together Sunday afternoon to help clean-up Squirrel Hill Falls Park, located at 48th and Chester Ave. The park has been closed for some time and the Clean-Up Day was an opportunity for service and a chance to talk with a few folks from Friends Rehabilitation Program Inc., a local affordable housing organization, who owns the space.

The project had volunteers including neighbors who once didn’t’ know each other, local children, and several passers-by who stopped in and helped with the project. They cleaned out many bags of old leaves, large tree branches, and tackled the ever extensive ivy growth.

We wanted to thank Tool Library for its generous contribution of tools. Without the plethora of tools we received from the Tool Library, this community service project wouldn’t have been possible.

Thanks again!
