Friends of PhillyPumptrack at Parkside-Evans

Dear All,
We have officially registered our Friends of PhillyPumptrack at Parkside Evans group. If you signed up with us, you already received an email. If you would like to be added to our Friends group for build and maintenance volunteering opportunities please send an email to

We realize this has been a two-year process. The city bureaucracy is deep my friends, very deep. But we have faith and there are a lot of great people at Parks and Rec and the Fairmount Conservancy supporting this project. We will keep you posted this Spring. If you've driven by the site, you've seen our new trees growing out of the clean fill that was put on site last Spring! : )

Tonight we will be meeting with Parks & Rec to start a Friends of PhillyPumptrack group. We have maintained a list of everyone that has ever showed up at an event and gave us a name and email. As soon as we have more information we will be letting everyone know how to join the group. We will be working with the Parkside Civic Association, Parks & Rec, and the neighbors to create a cohesive group of volunteers to work during the build phase as well as maintain the track. 

We are currently awaiting final sign off from the City Legal Dept. and look forward to posting a build date soon. LONG TIME COMING!
