Penn Treaty master plan open house

Tuesday night, advocates for a new vision for Penn Treaty Park held an open house at which citizens gathered to look at the finished concept master plan. The event, held at the First Presbyterian Chuch at 418 E. Girard Ave., showed the final product that came out of the work conducted by a diverse group of community residents, planning experts, historians, non-profits and park lovers. Fairmount Park, the Friends of Penn Treaty Park, and the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society worked with Bryan Hanes Studio to develop the master plan, which was created after a long series of focus groups and community meetings. The next steps involve finding funding for the project.
