Help keep South Philadelphia’s FDR Park Wild!

City officials are considering a proposal to destroy nearly 200 acres of the wild meadowlands at South Philadelphia’s FDR Park to convert it to artificial turf soccer fields, roads, bleachers, buildings and parking lots.

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.
