Help keep South Philadelphia’s FDR Park Wild!

City officials are considering a proposal to destroy part of the wild meadowlands at South Philadelphia’s FDR Park to convert it to artificial turf soccer fields, roads, bleachers and buildings for a potential 2026 World Cup soccer bid.

This shortsighted proposal would do irreparable harm to a park beloved by residents from all corners of the city, and one of South Philly’s largest open spaces. Email Mayor Kenney and Philadelphia City Council and tell them to cancel this proposal today.
