‘The Meadows’ Arts Park is reshaping creativity in South Kensington. Located in a formerly vacant lot across the street from the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, the pop-up park is as a space for neighbors to meet, enjoy the outdoors, and experience art anytime they would like.

The Philly Block Project’s Pop-Up Arts Park on the 1400 block of N. American St. will open September 8th with music to celebrate the community-built space. The Philly Block Project will host Wednesday Nights In The Meadows, an array of weekly arts and community programming from 6pm – 7:30pm beginning August 24th.
