    In school I was taught: "I" before "E", except after "C".

    F-I-E-L-D

    But as far as that playground, not sure..., I heard that the feds are out roaming towns that John Wayne Gacy might have visited...
    In search of more corpses...

    It will be an athletic complex mostly for Father Judge with regulation size football and baseball fields.

    Everybody who resides in Holmesburg and who uses the playground and neighboring Pennypack Park regularly should fully know about this, but very few do so far while the project itself is being rushed through very hush hush. The plan is to resurface the entire athletic field areas with synthetic grass. Yes, we're talking a type of AstroTurf here. There are all sorts of problems expected to result from this, number one being that Ramp Playground is a vital watershed. Also to be expected is hazardous chemicals that will be in the runoff flowing into surrounding areas, including Pennypack Park, and into the ground water. From an athletic viewpoint many leading athletes today are against synthetic grass, and David Beckham refuses to play on it. In brief, the whole deal smells, and complaints should be made to all our politicians regarding it. The lead politician behind it is the outgoing Joan Krajewski, and I think we all know where that's at. Because your taxdollars are being used in this project you have every right to have your say regarding it, and oppose it if you feel it's misguided. DON'T LET YOUR POLITICIANS TELL YOU OTHERWISE! What I myself as a Holmesburg resident am advocating is that the synthetic resurfacing plan be scrapped and replaced with a plan to resurface the fields with fresh soil and actual grass. You can't go wrong with that. And I encourage all others to do the same.

    Ridiculous. Steve weren't you bounced from blogs before for such nonsense? Maybe you and the civic head should have showed up to the community meeting at RAMP. Hazardous chemicals will not be running off into Pennypack creek. Thanks for the scare tactic.
    The field resurfacing project has been in the planning stages for over two years. So, your statement that it is being rushed through under a hush hush policy is baseless.
    The project is going ahead as planned.
    P.S. Who cares about David Beckham? Oh, soccer moms that enjoy daydreaming.

    What about those of us who enjoy Daydreaming about Soccer Moms? LOL


    Will the Fields be available to other teams with the Issuance of Permits?

    This was not rushed. I will say it again, it has been in process for over two years. Multi-million dollar projects do not get rushed through. Why would anyone be mad at an updated facility? It has looked like hell for over 30 years. Boo hoo, people won't be able to walk their dogs there anymore. You weren't suppose to walk them there in the first place. It is an athletic field, not a dog park. Nothing nicer then letting your dog defecate on a ball field and leaving it there.

    From my understanding Judge is paying for a large part of this project.

    I wonder if the gates will be locked when not in use by those who will have permits. I hope a city owned facility is open to all to use. Liberty bell/ Picariello Playground (red lion and calera) locks up the baseball field already.

    They dont lock it up so people cant use it...they lock them up because people ruin and vandalize the properties wasting the volunteers efforts for a clean place to play. I wish they would lock up every single playground and field after dark....

    @ Mayfair......Liberty bell YO doesn't own the field.....city does....how come Parkwood fields aren't locked up or Academy Sabres ? ....seen with my own eyes....guy from Liberty bell tell a group that were playing softball on the field that they couldn't use it......they weren't vandalizing or trashing....simply having fun.

    Here's the thing: they have to lock the gates because if they don't dog owners will use it as a dog run and there will be piss and crap all over the field. That's the sad reality.

    That being said, just because public funds are paying a portion that doesn't mean that everybody is allowed to use it. You can't exactly stroll into Citizens Bank Park or Lincoln Financial Field.

    Sorry, for people to stupid to figure it out let me make my point more clear: just because public funds are used for something does not mean that the public has a right to unfettered access.

    It's Judge's field. If they're smart, they'll lock the gate whenever they are not using it. Otherwise it will be abused by low-lifes and animals.
