About the Event

A melange of wonder abounds within and near West Parkside: a historic neighborhood, the historic Centennial District, two lakes, a first order stream, wildlife in the city, amazing statuary, vestiges of an open-air trolley through the park, a hidden pavilion in the trees, a brand new example of environmental injustice, and a native plant nursery (LandHealth’s very own) built upon a former abandoned rail yard. Can you believe we can cover all this in a single walk? Come out and see for yourself!

Meeting spot: The parking lot at 49th Street and Parkside Avenue, 19131. Across the street from Fairmount Park. (Note: Between 48th and 50th Streets, not near Wynnefield Avenue)
