From the FB Page of Friends of Julian Abele Park:
FINALLY!! This picture may be of sunset, but it's a new dawn for our park! Construction is starting tomorrow, and when it's done we will have a whole new park, with all new trees, paved paths, a gorgeous entrance gate, shrubs and perennial beds. Our park will at last look like a park instead of a vacant lot!! Thanks to DCNR and the City of Philadelphia for the grant that's making this happen. Of course the park will be fenced off and inaccessible for about three months, but that's a small price for the improvements that we will enjoy!
