Paine’s Park to Open May 22nd
Paine’s Park, the “public place for skateboarding” near the Art Museum, will open
on Wednesday, May 22nd. This announcement comes on the heels of a successful
Since October, crews have worked to create the park between Eakins Oval and the
Schuylkill River Trail. Paine’s Park isn’t so much a skatepark, but a “shared public space
where skateboarding is the primary use.” In addition, there will also be seating areas and
new links between the Parkway and Schuylkill River Trail.
The park’s designers, Anthony Bracali of Friday Architects/Planners and SkateNerd’s
Brian Nugent, aimed to replicate the kind of skating environment found in LOVE Park,
and while Paine’s Park may not replace LOVE Park or Dilworth Plaza in the hearts of
some skaters, pieces of those spaces are part of the new park: two 20-foot granite slabs
salvaged from LOVE Park and eight benches from Dilworth Plaza were incorporated into
The park cost more than $4.5 million to build, financed through private, city and state
funds, and is a collaborative effort between the city’s skateboarding community and
government. Last month, Franklin’s Paine Skatepark Fund held a successful Kickstarter
campaign, which surpassed its $10,000 goal to cover the project’s remaining costs.
“These funds raised will go towards our construction and project management costs,
and the funds raised in excess of our goal will help us with our first year programming
and maintenance costs,” explained Franklin’s Paine Skatepark Fund Executive Director
“Every time I walk on site I have to pinch myself,” Laver said. “The park is really starting
to take shape now that the 360 degree observation deck and central amphitheater are
almost complete, and we have flat work and trees going in now too.”

This month, Philadelphia Magazine released their annual guide to the best real estate in the city and
suburbs. Cheering that the local market is “finally getting its groove back,” the magazine compiled a list
of the 15 hottest neighborhoods, including great statistics such as what’s selling where ( for how much/
how fast) to the people doing the buying (increase in residents with a B.A. or higher). Neighborhoods
included (in no specific) Fairmount, Fishtown/Kensington, Lower North Philly, Graduate Hospital, Northern
Liberties, Avenue of the Arts and Rittenhouse.
“What our list reveals about the city—and its residents—may delight you. Or it may just make you want to
pack up and move now, while you can still get in.”

The Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation is rolling out an interactive website that focuses
on the city’s neighborhoods. It includes more than just listings of neighborhood eateries – it also features
videos from neighborhood residents that detail their favorite places to visit.
Funded through a grant through the William Penn Foundation, the Philadelphia Neighborhoods campaign
spotlights 14 of the visitor-ready areas that surround Center City. The site allows you to explore the
storied streets, buzzed-about restaurants, craft beer-centric bars, emerging art galleries, indie shops,
intimate music venues, plentiful parks and annual festivals.
GPTMC President Meryl Levitz hopes it will encourage visitors to Philly and natives too to venture
“one more block” to visit a neighborhood not on their itinerary. She explained, “Sometimes people just
need an invitation. These 14 neighborhoods that ring Center City are ready for visitors, have a sense of
community and want to share it.”
Mike Harris Executive Director of South Street and Head House District is thrilled to be a part of it: “So
much word of mouth gets out there about what’s going on and we’re thrilled by that!”
