Another Dilworth Park Amenity Opens Friday

Plus: more SEPTA entrances, walkways, and a tree grove.


In addition to Rothman Ice Rink opening next month, Dilworth Park will be debuting another feature: the Albert M. Greenfield Lawn.

According to a press release from the Center City District, the 6,9000-square foot green space will be dedicated and opened tomorrow at 11:00am. The site is expected to function as a relaxing public area for visitors to go read and work, with occasional programmed events setting up camp there throughout the year.

The new space is named in honor of Albert M. Greenfield, former chair of the city’s Planning Commission under Mayor Richardson Dilworth. Greenfield is noted for having overseen numerous revitalization projects in Center City during the 1950s.
