Passyunk Neighborhood Greening Program

PARC has launched a Greening Initiative for East Passyunk Avenue and the surrounding neighborhoods.

To kick-start the initiative, 17 trees will be planted on the avenue with a concentration of trees planned for the fountain located at East Passyunk Avenue and Tasker Street.
PARC has also committed to match up to $2,500 each for the four surrounding community groups and civic associations who are in the process of raising or who have raised funds targeted toward neighborhood greening activities for a total $20,000 investment by PARC toward “greening” the neighborhood. The community groups include the Passyunk Square Civic Association, East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District, Lower Moyamensing Civic Association and the East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association.
