Monthly Event

Designing a Culture of Recreation


Thursday, July 18, 2024

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM


Center for DesignPhiladelphia, 1218 Arch Street, Philadelphia PA 19107


With two stadium districts in the works, the FDR Park redesign, and a proposed $60 million waterfront pool park along the Schuylkill River, Philadelphia has a newly heightened focus on sports and recreation. How can Philadelphia leverage these projects, and think beyond rec centers in our neighborhoods, to build a larger culture of sport, recreation, and physical activity in the city? 


Light refreshments will be served.


The event is free to attend and we ask you to RSVP so that we can get an approximate head count.
