FDR Park Fountain
FDR Park, located in Packer Park at South Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, includes 15 tennis courts, seven softball/baseball fields, a golf course and a skateboard park. The park was chosen as the Fairmount Park Conservancy’s 2011 “Greening the Neighborhood” site and will have $250,000 to use toward improving the quality of its lakes with aerators.
During the fall of 2011, the Fairmount Park Conservancy’s funding award with the help of several other sponsors allowed FDR Park to construct a new playground. Donations were also made by Ed Snyder and Co. after his newest venture Xfinity Live opened it’s door. Ed Snyder felt as though he owed it to the community of Packer Park since he was drawing a revenue from the community. Hats off to Big Ed!
