Welcome to Dickinson Square Park

Love Your Park Fall 2014

On Saturday, November 15th, in conjunction with Philly Green's city-wide Love Your Park Fall Edition event, we'll be preparing the Park for the Fall and Spring by raking the leaves.  This will take place from 9am - 12:30pm or so on Saturday; meet at the Parsons Building.

As per the season, just like last year, many leaves have fallen. And they do require raking, if only to prevent them from sitting on the lovely Park grass all winter where they will become schmutzy and prevent the grass from growing in the Spring and Summer.  A notable absence of leaves will also leave the Park looking relatively fresh.

This year, however, we will not be seeing the Giant Leaf Sucking Truck because it died a sudden, untimely, and extremely tragic death. It simply stopped working, and that apparently was that.

But truck or no truck, we will carry on.  There will still be many leaves to rake, and we'll need every last volunteer we can get.

Also, if you've been collecting the Love Your Park series T-shirts, as some of us have, there will be some of those available.

We'll also be doing miscellaneous maintenance. 

Snacks, coffee, and lunch will be served.


See you there!



2014 Farmers' Market


The 2014 Dickinson Square Park Farmers' Market has concluded for the year.  The Friends would like to thank all of the farmers and support staff who made this year one of the best yet.

The Market will return in the late Spring or early Summer of 2015.  




Dickinson Square Park

Welcome to Dickinson Square Park, one of Philadelphia's great public spaces. Dickinson Square is located in the Pennsport section of South Philadelphia, and provides safe, comfortable and pleasing open space in a densely populated neighborhood.

Dickinson Square Park features several basketball courts, swing sets, jungle gym equipment, and large shade trees on 3 acres of classic turn-of-the-century park design.

Please feel free to visit soon and often. Grab lunch or dinner at one of the nearby shops. Come and see another side of South Philly, and discover that the neighborhood is more than the Italian Market and the Sports Complex.
