Parklet at 45th and Walnut.
Three more parklets, public seating platforms that replace parking spots, are coming to the University City area this week. A new parklet was installed near Manakeesh Cafe on Walnut Street near 45th on Tuesday. Two parklets, with new design developed by Philadelphia’s Shift Space Design, are returning to their last year’s locations today and Thursday – on 44th Street near Spruce, across from Honest Tom’s and Lil’ Pop Shop, and on Locust Street near 40th, across from Ramen Bar and Keswick Cycle.

These robins roosting near 45th and Spruce may regret that they stuck around for the storm scheduled to blow through tonight. It sounds like a few inches of snow will be on the ground tomorrow morning (photo by West Philly Local).

Love Your Park Day at Barkan Park, 50th & Spruce, took place on Saturday, Nov. 17, with 25 volunteers, including five AKA sorority sisters (above) from Penn and Drexel who heard about the event through West Philly Local. Neighborhood volunteers planted two new dogwood trees and nearly 550 spring bulbs, as well as raked leaves and cleaned up debris from Hurricane Sandy to prepare the park for the winter ahead.
