    Participate in one of our many neighborhood events

    Our yearly events are a great way to catch up with friends and neighbors:

    • Spring and Fall Clean-up: spend a few hours socializing and keeping the neighborhood looking great.
    • Block Party: good food and good music for neighbors of all ages and lots of entertainment for the kids.
    • Holiday Party: celebrate the holidays with the neighbors and maybe a visit from Santa!

    We also organize other fun events. Recent highlights include:

    • Schuylkill River Cruise: a beautiful summer evening spent on a guided cruise up the Schuylkill River.
    • "Walk and Crawl" Tours: a series of 3 tours celebrating the history and architecture of the neighborhood.
    • Spooky Gathering!: a scary time in Coxe Park for neighbors young and old on Halloween night.
