Love Park is being redesigned. Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, the Fairmount Park Conservancy and PennPraxis want your help and input on making it happen, so they’re hoping you show up to a meeting on December 10 with something to say.
During an initial stakeholder’s meeting regarding the redesign on November 4, bicycle parking stations were mentioned as a need for the space in the future—“whether in the park or in the garage below,” according to notes posted on the project’s page at PlanPhilly.
“A parking station was identified as a possible source for revenue generation whereby members have a reserved bike parking spot. This would effectively reduce the competition that goes on with bicycle commuters vying for limited bike racks and sign poles. Additionally, bicycle racks are most successful when consolidated into a compact space,” it was noted.
At the next event, on December 10 at the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Central Branch, the public will be asked for input on some of the ideas proposed at the stakeholder’s meeting.
Among the other topics that’ll likely be discussed, given the shareholder meeting notes:
- Maintenance and security
- Connectivity along the Parkway
- Physical access
- Pedestrian crossings
- Tables and chairs
- Restroom facilities
Be sure to read up on what’s being proposed, and to come up with some original ideas, too. Check out the below flier for more details. Attendance requires pre-registration, which is free.
