Come celebrate the return of excitement for Frankford Pause Park as we unveil designs for this up-and-coming community space during DesignPhiladelphia’s 2022 Festival, accompanying an evening of food trucks and performances. The site will undergo a major transformation from vacant lot to thriving park by installing raised garden beds, a performing stage, lighted canopies, and movable seating and play structures, all of which will sit on a bed of colorful turf grass. In redesigning this space, we aim to attract moving pedestrians into the park and provide community members temporary relief from the area’s bustling commercial and transportation district while enhancing the overall connectivity of the surrounding neighborhood.
