Nature's Hidden Surprises
Judith Gratz, our environmental educator led us on walks in Tacony Creek Park to discover many surprises. We learned about butterflies, bird migrations, watersheds, and so much more. Join us every month for a new adventure!
New Gate for Olney Avenue and Tabor Road gateway
Illegal dumping and vehicles on the trail have been a problem facing the park for a long time. Through a grant from Fed Ex and the
Rails-To-Trails Conservancy, and with support from Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, we've installed a brand new gate and bollard at the Olney Avenue and Tabor Road park entrance. This gate and boulders will help prevent people illegally driving vehicles into the park while allowing pedestrians and bicycles to enter.
Walks through Tacony Creek Park with Police
Thank you to the 15th 24th, 25th, 2nd and 35th Police Districts for meeting with us at various Tacony Creek Park gateways to discuss safety and environmental concerns such as ATV usage and illegal dumping. Thank you for getting to know our TCP trails and committing to support our efforts to make the park safe for residents.
