Plan to join fellow Philanthropy Network members and the City’s Commissioner of Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Kathryn Ott Lovell on Tuesday, October 17 from 1:00 – 2:30 pm for a site visit to the Francis J Meyers Recreation Center. Located in Southwest Philadelphia, Francis J Meyers is among the 400 sites that could receive investments through Rebuilding Community Infrastructure (Rebuild), Mayor Jim Kenny’s seven year, $500  million program to revitalize neighborhood parks, recreation centers, playgrounds, and libraries.

Philanthropy Network members will gain a better understanding of the physical needs of Rebuild sites and the broader impact Rebuild improvements will have on local communities across Philadelphia. We will hear from community leaders about the critical role of community engagement efforts to the success of Rebuild.
