Soak It Up Cafe: Now Accepting Reservations
Join the Philadelphia Water Department at the Soak it Up Café for this year’s Park(ing) Day on Friday, September 21st from 9:30-5:00. Park(ing) Day is an annual, international event where metered parking spaces are converted into temporary public parks for the day. This year PWD is collaborating with the Community Design Collaborative to celebrate innovative designs for managing stormwater through green infrastructure. The parking space is at the intersection of 12th and Filbert, right across from the Reading Terminal Market. Our signature rain barrel tables will serve as a perfect spot for lunch, where you can read about green tools on our Soak It Up Café menu and enjoy a glass of Schuylkill or Delaware Champagne – some of the country’s finest tap water!
If you build a space, or visit ours, you are welcome to the Park(ing) Day after party hosted by the Community Design Collaborative, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, and the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities. RSVP here.
