The Bridesburg Park recently received a William Penn Foundation grant which will help launch Phase 1 of construction as featured in a recent Philadelphia Inquirer article. SITIO has completed design and documentation of the architectural components of this 10-acre riverfront park that includes a performance pavilion, picnic pavilion, and restroom facilities. These structures evoke the site’s existing industrial context and celebrates the iconic Betsy Ross Bridge that can be seen from nearly every corner of the site. The Bridesburg Park serves as a keystone in connecting the community of Bridesburg not only with their waterfront, but also their industrial heritage.
The project team includes Langan, Ground Reconsidered, O’Donnell and Naccarato, Arora Engineering, Milrose Consultants, and Becker & Frondorf.
