Housing/Community Development

Parkside Association of Philadelphia

West Parkside has a large and growing need for a community and sports facility. Many schools in the neighborhood do not have adequate sports facilities and must travel far for daily practices and competitive tournaments. This study evaluated the feasibility of redeveloping a multi-acre parcel to serve the neighborhood’s sports and learning needs as well as greater Philadelphia’s indoor sports facility and tournament needs.
