We'll let you in on a secret. There's a natural oasis in South Philadelphia, tucked between industry, bustling neighborhoods, and stadiums.

Smack dab in the middle ofFDR Parkare Edgewood and Meadow Lakes, left over from the tidal marsh area between the Delaware River and Schuylkill River.

If you're seeking natural beauty, the Audubon Society of Pennsylvania named this 348-acre park of natural lands, ponds and lagoons as one of the best places in Philadelphia to observe birds.

This park boasts man made wonders as well: its boathouse, gazebo, and American Swedish History Museum are remnants of the national Sesquicentennial Exposition, a celebration of our nation's 150th birthday.

Every year, thousands of Philadelphia residents flock to this park to exercise on their track and playing fields, attend concerts and events, hosts gatherings and picnics, and fish in its ponds and lakes.

We'll supply with everything you need for day spent enjoying one of Philadelphia's hidden gems at this cleanup: bags, gloves, tools, and even a post cleanup dinner. To learn more, call 215-642-0693 or
