Join Fairmount Park Conservancy and the Wynnefield Community Neighborhood Association for an MLK Day service event in Fairmount Park! We will work on cleaning up trash, litter, and dumping along Parkside Avenue near the Philly Pumptrack and Parkside Evans Playground. This area serves as a gateway to Fairmount Park for the Wynnefield community and is a vibrant recreational hub for the local residents and park enthusiasts alike.
