The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC) is excited to announce a capital campaign to raise funds to outfit the new Park at Penn’s Landing, and that the campaign has launched with a $2 million challenge grant from The Pew Charitable Trusts; $4 million more is needed to reach the fundraising goal.
Specifically, the funds will be used to outfit the park with landscaping, such as trees, flowers, shrubs, and other greenery; furnishings, such as seating and child play areas; a café; and a performance space for hosting concerts, festivals, and other activities. All of the outfitting and furnishings incorporate initial feedback from Philadelphia residents and other stakeholders, which was received as part of DRWC’s long-term, ongoing public engagement process for the new space.
