Garden Court Community Association

Garden Court approached the Collaborative to refresh its neighborhood community garden and tennis courts. Reconfiguring garden plots will enable more residents to garden. A new, pedestrian-only entrance and a refurbished gathering space with pergola, picnic tables, Adirondack chairs, string lights and container plantings will create a stronger sense of welcome. This improvement project will also offer Philadelphia Water an opportunity to install a green stormwater management system.
