Glen Foerd on the Delaware/Glen Foerd Conservation Corporation

Glen Foerd, a grand ‘20s-era estate on the Delaware River, is now part of Philadelphia’s park system. The Collaborative’s volunteer team developed a conceptual plan to show how its charming garden house could be reinvented as a play house for children’s programming. They also designed and built a temporary play space to test out ideas for bringing play to Glen Foerd.
