Girard Park Improvements

Have you ever ventured up to Girard Park at 21st and Ritner Street? Good news, it's about to get some much needed upgrades such as repaving 18,000 square feet of walkways, better lighting and new benches. The site was originally war-financier Stephen Girard's farm estate and is the namesake for the surrounding neighborhood of, you guessed it, Girard Estates. The improvements are expected to cost around $280,000. [Passyunk Post, Photo: Wikipedia]
