This Saturday, November 14 is Love Your Park Day!  We will meet at 66th and Sherwood at 10 a.m. by the guard shed to show Morris Park some love.

We currently have a boy scout troop signed up to volunteer, but we will definitely need some more hands.

Please contact us at morrisparkphiladelphia@gmail.com if you are able to join in the outdoor fun!

Leaf Pick up


Philadelphia is providing mechanical Leaf Pick Up for Overbrook Farms.  Here are the dates and streets.  Be sure to have your leaves raked to the curb on the right day.  Bagged leaves will be picked up with the trash.  Thanks to our neighbor Joe G for posting this on the Listserv.

Ghost Walk TypeHalloween is just a week away.  We are having a Ghost Walk at Morris Park to get everyone in the mood for a spooky Halloween.  Our Ghost Walk was a big success.  Here are some photos provided by Kathleen Stull/Friends of Morris Park.  Thanks to Vernyce Dannells and her fearless husband, Kip!!
