There’s always something for everyone in the City of Brotherly Love, but this week is full of events! The following is a list of some that are taking place tomorrow, July 24th.
The Parks Alliance will be hosting a walking tour of Fairmount Park. The tour, which runs from 5:30 to 8:00, is $20 for regular admission and $15 for Parks Alliance members. The tour group will meet up at SEPTA’s Wynnefield Avenue Station and then tread off the beaten path to some of Fairmount Park’s hidden historic gems.
A civic feedback session will be held for Bartram’s Mile from 6 to 8 pm. Bartram’s Mile is the name for the stretch of riverfront along the west bank of the Schuylkill between Grays Ferry and 58th St. Multiple designs for the new open space will be presented at the meeting tomorrow, which will be located at the Bartram Village Community Room, 5404 Gibson Road.
The last public meeting for 4224 Baltimore, a 92-unit residential building to be developed on an empty lot across from Clark Park, will be held at 6:30. Don’t miss your last chance to comment on the proposals!
Wednesday the 24th is also the first day to see “The Tempest” as part of the annual Shakespeare in the Park series. The play begins at 7 pm at the bowl in Clark Park and runs nightly through Sunday the 28th. In case of rain, performances are held at the nearby St. Francis de Sales School.
As part of the movie screening series called The Awesome Fest, “Shaun of the Dead” will be shown at the Oval (the new pop-up park on the Parkway). The free movie will be accompanied by a Thriller dance-off at 8:30 pm.
