Summer has Officially Started! / by Rosa Mannion


We are so excited to unveil the pilot site for the Pop-up Pools Project at Francisville Playground.  Officially open today, the park now features a custom wood lounge deck with palm trees, a space for family gatherings furnished with colorful furniture, games, and lush planting.  This project is an experiment to see if low-cost, high-impact improvements can make Philadelphia's public pools even better and is supported by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.  So come, go for a swim, relax on the lounge deck, and let us know what you think! The pool is located at 1737 Francis Street, Philadelphia, PA 19130 in the Fairmount section of the city.  Click here to follow the project on Instagram.
